The wonderful Welcome to Yorkshire garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show has received a highly coveted gold medal. The 99th garden by the renowned designer and landscaper Mark Gregory of Landform Consultants marks both the 10th anniversary and 10th year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for Welcome to Yorkshire.
Marks admits that this garden is his most ambitious to date.
The atmospheric Welcome to Yorkshire garden evokes the very essence of the county, striking a balance between the industrial and the beautiful, demonstrating that a working lock can also be a place of tranquillity and charm.
The aim of the garden is to inspire those who see it, to visit Yorkshire and experience the county’s beauty first hand.
The spectacular garden follows in the footsteps Mark’s 2018 gold medal winning garden – Welcome to Yorkshire’s most successful Chelsea garden to date which was honoured with a hat-trick of awards: a Gold Medal, the BBC People’s Choice and Best Construction – and captures the beauty of the county’s canals, whilst celebrating the drama of Yorkshire’s rich industrial heritage.
'Each year you strive to build on the success of the previous, which after last year was no mean feat! We’re over the moon that the Welcome to Yorkshire garden has been recognised once again and couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Chelsea is always a team effort, and we’ve got a winning team, I couldn’t be prouder,' says Mark Gregory, Landform Consultants Managing Director.
Affectionately named the ‘Construction King of Chelsea’, Mark Gregory has built a grand total of 99 inspiring and detailed Chelsea show gardens and spent almost four years of his life on the grounds of Royal Hospital.
Mark founded Landform on 1st April 1988 and the very next day was called on to create a last-minute Chelsea garden and he’s been back every single year since, and he hasn't let us down.
Landform holds more than 20 Gold medals, alongside Mark’s five personal Gold medals.
