This garden has an industrial look inspired by the wind turbines that feature in the design. Its owner has a passion for reclaimed materials and wanted to create a garden that included his home-engineered turbines, which have been constructed using industrial cooling fans.

The design also features a steel-framed structure that acts as a shelter, with a built-in fireplace, log store and green roof. The boundaries are constructed from recycled timber, highlighting the garden’s industrial feel and creating a strong backdrop for the planting. The planting is loose, informal and easy to maintain.


Expert commentary by Robert Hillier - Chair of Small Gardens panel

This was just fantastic; with its messages of environmental sustainability. Clearly fans on the garden deliver that message loud and clear.

As it has an industrial backgound, I did not expect the high quality of the design; the use of materials, the attention to detail and the colour blending was just magnificent. The planting was great. It is innovative and it certainly deserves to win.
