My name is Whitney Hedges and over the next few months am going to produce hopefully my first show garden on behalf of my college Hadlow for the Kent show.
I have Had to come up with a brief for the Garden which is daunting, what I decided on was based on my admiration for a classmates project to build a portable home from a recycled shipping container. this prompted me to design a garden based on recycling and use a shipping container as a pavilion/ summerhouse. my budget is somewhat limited so my initial plans for a convertible outdoor entertaining and office space has been scaled down a shame really because I felt this made the design much stronger.
The challenge is to make everything recycled and chic at the same time this is no cluttered eccentric hippy hotbox!! I want you to imagine yourself entertaining 6 or 7 of your friends late into the night here and your a little chuffed this space is yours!
