Marshalls Sustainability at Chelsea Flower Show

Although not specifically a shed, the Scenic Blue-designed Marshalls Sustainability Garden at Chelsea does have an intriguing cedar studio building underneath an earth rubble mound from where you could work (though not sure about wi-fi?). It's also admirably sustainable, for example, its solar-panelled sculptures produce electricity and there is a general theme of recycling: gabions filled with stone rubble create walls for the mound and studio building. Growing on the mound are foxgloves and mixed wildflowers - now that's what I call a green roof. It's all designed by Roger Smith. You can enjoy a 360 virtual tour via the BBC by clicking here.
