Chelsea Flower Show: shed roundup

It was a particularly poor year for garden offices at Chelsea Flower Show, apart from Mark Gregory's for The Children's Society. But of course there were a lot of sheds on show and John 'Shedman' Davies has a great roundup at Shedworld. Shedworking's favourite of John's selection is the Time to Think, Space to Breathe garden designed by Tony Davy and Mike Roberts in the Small Gardens section. Here's what they say about it on the BBC:
Mike had the brainwave of a simple alpine sauna lodge nestling by a lake. This tied in with Tony's memories of meadows of wild flowers, fresh air and wide open spaces experienced on walking holidays in mountains throughout Europe. After many hours of fine-tuning, the finished design included a turf roofed lodge sitting in a clearing where forest meets a glacial lake, surrounded with naturalistic planting and enclosed by a rustic fence. We hope our design gives a feeling of oneness with nature, creating a space that gives the user time to think and space to breathe.
