Lifestyle Gardens

This new category at the show aims to cater for everyone, from young families to older couples

New for 2015, these gardens are designed to offer ideas for outdoor spaces to suit key stages in life – from buying your first home to a garden to enjoy in retirement.

Owning your first home can be daunting – and sorting out the garden even more so! This garden aims to be inspiring but achievable, offering a space for relaxing and encouraging birds, butterflies and bees.

Gardens change when kids come along, and this space has been designed to be both safe and exciting for small people, while still offering a relaxing haven for their parents at the end of the day.

Neil Sutcliffe

As the children get bigger, the garden once more becomes a place to entertain family and friends. This design offers plenty of opportunities for summer get-togethers, and al-fresco dining that means more than just barbecues.
