Invigorating and calming, restorative and contemplative, The Garden Bed illustrates how even the most humble of spaces can be a beautiful sanctuary.

Frosts Landscape Construction were honoured to install the garden at Chelsea Flower Show and help Stephen and Alison’s first Chelsea garden to achieve a Gold Medal in the Artisan Garden category.

Frosts worked with the designers to source materials and plants for the scheme and test out options before the show by constructing a full scale mock up off site. This also allowed a construction and installation ‘dry run’ to ensure the show ground build ran smoothly.
