We always love to see and to show off how our customers and friends utilise the products that we provide them with in beautiful and creative ways that showcase the very best of the stone. That’s why we were delighted to see just how well talented young garden designer Kate Savill put our very own Clipsham walling stone to use in her gorgeous ‘Time is a Healer’ garden at the ever popular RHS Tatton Park Flower Show.
Nottingham based Kate, who has a Diploma in Garden Design from the Pickard School of Garden Design and served an apprenticeship in Horticulture and Design with the Homebase Garden Academy, used our signature stone in a number of ways as an important part of her very own take on a traditional Medieval physic garden.
Twinned with plants that were known for having medicinal properties and as such were often used in such Physic gardens, the honey coloured Clipsham limestone for which we are best known appeared as both walling stone and as part of the paving of the beautiful ‘Time is a Healer’ garden.
Tracking a path from a drier and more exposed exterior to a lush interior, the circular limestone path was a key element of the superb garden which was highly acclaimed at the show and also featured Clipsham stone walling in the seating area.
As well as collecting a much prized gold medal, ‘Time is a Healer’ also saw designer Kate named as runner-up in the exciting RHS Young Designer of the Year competition. A fabulous contest aimed at giving young talent a chance to showcase their skills and abilities in garden design, the RHS Young Designer of the Year competition in 2015 was a hard fought and impressively high quality contest.
We at Stamford Stone therefore, are proud and privileged to have played our – albeit small – part in the wonderful success of Kate’s gorgeous, highly praised ‘Time is a Healer’ garden that did so well in that prestigious competition.
