15:00 - 15:45 Creating Gardens in a Small Space

Creating Gardens in a Small Space

Small gardens are often the most challenging to design, and the hardest to make work.  We value the space even more when it is limited, especially in the pressurised environments of town and cities. We need it to work practically; somewhere to sit outside in but also somewhere to store the BBQ, wheelie bin and garden tools. And small spaces are totally unforgiving when it comes to detail - every mistakenly placed plant or badly laid paving slab is visible.  In this talk Matthew Wilson will share some of the design tips and tricks he has used in the making of dozens of small city gardens, to help make the most of that invaluable outdoor space, regardless of the size.

15:00 - 15:45 Gardens as Entertaining Spaces

Gardens as Entertaining Spaces

Whether you have a balcony, a small courtyard garden or a rambling country estate it is important to get the most of your outside space as it is an asset to any home. A  garden should never be dull, boring and lacking in soul instead it should be a place of entertainment and full of sensory surprises. Too often we see the garden as a chore, a place to work in and maintain, but in this talk Matt will explore ways to maximise the entertainment value of your outside space so you will want to spend more time outside than in.
