About the RHS Chelsea 2016 Health, Happiness & Horticulture Garden


Working with the RHS, this year Ann-Marie Powell Gardens is looking to inspire everyone to make their front garden beautiful, as part of the RHS Greening Grey Britain campaign. “We couldn’t feel more passionate about this campaign” says Ann-Marie, “These days, so many front gardens in the UK are paved over for parking, but it doesn’t have to be this way. I want future generations to be proud of their front gardens and be encouraged to go on and make their own. I’d love to see roads lined with plants, to be enjoyed by front garden owners, passers by, whole communities, and wildlife. Of course, there are the environmental benefits to consider too.”

At Ann-Marie Powell Gardens our focus is on our client. Whether planning a new garden, renovating an old one or making changes to improve an outdoor space, our design starts with you. Our design for the Chelsea flower show this year is no different – a walk through space, designed to demonstrate to the public just what can be achieved in a small space, for ease of inspiration we’ve split the garden into sections. Whether you delight in the scaled down woodland, meadow or kitchen garden, it’s all possible to recreate in your garden back home.

As well as tackling our front gardens, we are promoting the health and happiness that can be achieved through gardening. Scientific research is finally available to back up what we gardeners have known for years – gardening is great for our physical and mental well-being. We hope more people will get out into their front garden, get fit and maybe even get to know the neighbours better!

Ann-Marie Powell Gardens is thrilled to be working again with The Outdoor Room, London Stone, and Hortus Loci, building on our success at Hampton Court Flower Show 2015. We pride our studio on working with the best partners in the industry and this year is no exception.
