Case Studies

2014 RHS Chelsea Flower Show: Help for Heroes Show Garden

Awarded the RHS Silver Gilt Medal and prestigious BBC People’s Choice Award for Best Show Garden, the Help for Heroes ‘Hope on the Horizon’ garden was inspired by and dedicated to the wounded and sick men and women of the armed forces, veterans and their families, who are and have been going through the recovery process, supported by H4H.

Designed as a contemplative and relaxing retreat, with sensory undertones, the garden featured granite blocks as the backbone to the structure, representing the physical form of those in the recovery process. The granite, starting as rough hewn and sporadically placed, becomes more refined, polished and structured as you progress through the garden, culminating in a beautiful granite sculpture by Mary Bourne, depicting the Hope on the Horizon. It featured stunning and vibrant planting combinations whilst maintaining the garden’s soothing and relaxing atmosphere, whilst also reflecting the colours of Help for Heroes. With granite blocks appearing to float on perfectly still, reflective water, it really aimed to emphasise the message the journey of these brave men and women of the armed forces, is very often quite miraculous.
