Work Rest Play at Hampton Court Flower Show

Since it's National Shed Week, it's great news that Hampton Court Palace Flower Show features among its show gardens the extremely shedworkingesque Work Rest Play, sponsored by the Garden Office Company and designed by Nick Buss. The garden and garden office is designed for a couple who have taken early retirement but are now running a small business from home: the garden provides both office space and somewhere to relax. Here's what the RHS says about it:
The easily maintained and colourful garden features multi-stemmed birch trees underplanted with heathers, conifers, ferns and grasses. The focal point of the garden is the Humphrey Bowden acer fountain, which brings another dimension to the design when illuminated at night. The couple’s interest in art is highlighted by the strategic placing of Lilia Umana artworks around the garden.
