Type: Coastal garden

Location: Shrewsbury Flower Show 2011

Award: Gold

The Seaside Garden was sponsored by Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors, and was created in conjunction with Severndale Specialist School. Once the flower show was over, the garden was adapted and installed at the school, and has transformed a courtyard into a sensory haven where the young people can enjoy the sensations of being beside the sea. 

The Show garden was filled with seaside planting, and included an original clinker boat, a sandy courtyard made from timbers reclaimed from a Welsh Beach, and a rocking Blenny water feature made by Coppersmith Richard Taylor.
