Garden designer Kate Gould has been awarded three awards (including Best Sanctuary Garden) for her contemporary, wellness and lifestyle-themed RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022 Sanctuary Garden, ‘Out of the Shadows’.

A win for Kate Gould

The award-winning, London-based designer caught the attention of the judges with her post-pandemic inspired garden design which packs a huge punch in terms of the lifestyle it delivers, in a perfectly tranquil and harmonious way. The garden won:

–        Best Sanctuary Garden

–        Best Construction in the Sanctuary Garden category

–        And Gold

Our post-pandemic gardens are being asked to work harder for us than ever. They are being tasked to not only grow plants, but also to provide an outdoor extension to our homes where we can relax, exercise, entertain and eat. With this in mind, ‘Out of the Shadows’ is a small, contemporary garden which features a state-of-the-art Jacuzzi® Swim Spa for exercising, spaces for seating and relaxation, climbing bars, and a yoga/ meditation space all elegantly situated amongst dramatic and exotic, tropical-style planting. 

‘Out of the Shadows’ is a lesson in how brilliant garden design can seamlessly incorporate modern lifestyle demands into a beautiful and inspirational garden space to be enjoyed year-round.
