Topic: Gardens as Entertaining Spaces
Matthew is an award winning British garden designer who decided to make his passion for plants and gardens his career in 2009. Since setting up his practice in the UK, he has designed a diverse range of exciting landscapes. Matthew’s approach to garden design is to tailor gardens to each client and produce very human outdoor spaces which tell a story, are a reflection of the people who use them and the surroundings in which they sit. Matthew’s design style is contemporary in nature with bold hard landscaping balanced by a tapestry of rich and full planting.
His conceptual garden at the 2012 RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show received an RHS gold medal and Best conceptual garden award; this was followed by a second RHS gold medal and the Best Show Garden award in 2013. In 2014 Matthew's first RHS main avenue Chelsea show garden for Brewin Dolphin attained a silver gilt medal. In 2016 Matthew built show gardens in Istanbul and Moscow for which he was awarded the coveted Grand Prix
