Reuben Kyte is proud to announce that we have just received an RHS Silver Gilt medal for the ‘Austerity Show Garden’ at the Gardener’s World Live exhibition at the Birmingham NEC. We also received ‘Best In Show’ for our category. The Garden was designed by Jade Goto and Reuben was commissioned to realise the innovative idea. Jade chose Reuben for his attention to detail and wide range of skills which enabled him to deliver the project to the very highest of standard.
The garden was inspired by the need to recycle materials but not to compromise on design. The deck and furniture were constructed out of old scaffolding planks and the timber wall was made using hardwood off-cuts from a joinery workshop. Corten Steel was used to make the window frame. Treebox provided a vertical planting system made out of recycled polypropylene. The planting was inspired by the arid conditions found in Mexico and other areas where there is a lack of water. This was a reflection on the need for water conservation due to climate change.
