WWT’s Working Wetlands garden wins Gold Award and Best Garden award at RHS Hampton Court flower show
The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust’s award winning garden is now on show from 5-10th July at Hampton Court, London. The garden is an example of how we can all use water in a sustainable way in our gardens and on our land.
Instead of dirty water disappearing straight down drains it runs through a series of channels, gravel and flower beds, permeable paving and ponds, cleaning the water and slowing the flow which eases flooding.
The design of the garden took over three months and included 85 plants species demonstrating how rainwater from roofs can be used to reduce flooding and pollution and be attractive for people and wildlife. The full story is available here.
Set in the impressive grounds of Henry VIII’s royal palace, the garden is a fantastic example of SuDS and how they work and can be created. Learn more about SuDS and WWT Consulting’s work online or even visit the garden in person.
