We are delighted to report that Garden House Design, the talented landscapers who build the Greenfingers’ garden at Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice in Sussex triumphed last week at The Association of Professional Landscapers awards.
The woodland walk garden at Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice near Arundel, designed by Ann-Marie Powell and built by Garden House Design, was nominated for the Best Community Garden award at the ceremony which took place in London on 13th March 2015.
The lavish awards were hosted by James Alexander Sinclair and saw 250 industry professionals gather to celebrate the very best in landscaping carried out by APL members.
The Woodland Walk at Chestnut Tree House was a major project for Greenfingers, completed in summer 2014. The project saw a previous unused piece of woodland in the hospice grounds transformed into a beautiful woodland retreat for the children and families who spend time at the hospice to enjoy. The garden includes many exciting and engaging elements all carefully designed with the children who use the hospice in mind. Children enter the woodland through impressive ‘moon gates’ suggesting a doorway to another world where they can delight in lawned picnic areas with bespoke blackboard panels; a water zone with viewing platform over a natural pond; a stick walk with giant telegraph poles; a relaxing and restful tepee; a bug zone with nesting boxes and bug ‘hotels’ and touch flowing strips of sail cloth in the hanging garden.
Congratulations to Garden House Design, Ann-Marie Powell and everyone else who was involved in this fantastic project.
