Why Commute garden office scoops gold medal at RHS Tatton Flower Show

Large congratulations to garden designer Pip Probert, one of the stars of the BBC series Your Garden Made Perfect, who has won a coveted Gold Medal at RHS Tatton Flower Show for her garden called 'Why Commute?'. The design has a suburban setting with the garden office and its additional storage area as the central elements. Features include a sedum roof and the building is separated from the out of sight house using a metal pergola and a raised planter. Here's what Pip says about it: 

"With more people now working from home, beautiful spaces that can be used to both work in and spend time with the family are key. Cercis are positioned to the left of the plot, chosen for their airy canopy and to give a good shape and coverage towards the boundary. Hydrangeas with their large, colourful leaves are positioned at the front face to add interest and allow surrounding plants to stand out."

And here's a video of the garden office at the show with Mariachi band Beato Burrito performing outside, as often happens to shedworkers.
