‘COPPICE’

RHS Flower Show Hampton Court – 2009
Silver medal award

Site – Square plot approximately 9m x 5m

Brief – Design and build a garden as part of the Flower Show’s ‘Sustainability’ exhibit

Design – ‘Coppice’ illustrates traditional rural crafts that rely on sustainably managed resources, such a broadleaf woodland. This demonstrates the mutually beneficial relationship whereby traditionally managed coppices, for instance, sustain craft skills and rural livelihoods, and visa versa. The ‘knock-on’ effect of this sustainable economic relationship is the conservation of habitats for wildlife and plant species.
