Artisan Garage Garden set for Chelsea 2016


I am a big fan of the Artisan Category at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and so I am delighted to see designer Kazuyuki Ishihara return to Chelsea with another garden for Cats Co. Ltd.

Visitors to RHS Chelsea have come to love his beautiful designs and for 2016 we will see him inspired in part by his memory of coming to the UK 10 years ago and seeing lovingly maintained antique cars.

The garden is a two-tier structure in which the ground floor will be used as space for a car, special tools and a place for relaxation with the roof-top for the garden itself. The garden can also be enjoyed by families with no car but for those with a car the garden fuses its form with that of the vehicle.

The car and plants will complement each other uniting the garage with the garden.

Kazuyuki Ishihara returns to RHS Chelsea for his eleventh year and will no doubt be bringing us another stunning design. He has become firmly part of the Chelsea family and his previous Gold Medals are testament to his success and perfection of his designs.

This is certainly one garden I will not miss and have a sneaky feeling that once again this designer will weave his magic.
