BALI Associate Designer member Lynn Hill of Lynn Hill Garden Design is once again flying the Scottish flag for BALI and its members in the region with her latest show garden design, ‘The Garden Party’. Working alongside BALI Registered members CED Natural Stone, Endrick Landscapes, Ashlea and Gardens by Water Gems, the celebratory garden will be fully unveiled at Gardening Scotland 2019 as part of the show’s 20th anniversary.
Teaming up with The Old Curiosity Distillery, the UK’s first working gin botanical garden, the garden will play host to an array of glorious stand-out showpieces, including a Rosso Dotto cocktail bar featuring a Caithness stone bar top and Italian glass sides, plus, golden quartzite sculpts and stone and corten steel screens. CED’s Nero Santiago porcelain paving, a contemporary range which is both elegant and sumptuous underfoot, will be used in the garden and a James Parker vortex slate statue will stand to attention at the entrance.
This is the third garden for Lynn at Gardening Scotland, each promoting the theme of outdoor living. In 2017, Lynn’s ‘The Tangible Garden’, which was all about dining and entertaining with family and friends, won Best New Show Garden 2017. The following year, health and wellbeing were at the fore with ‘The Garden Retreat’ showing how an oasis of calm and tranquillity could be created even in the smallest of spaces. This garden went on to win the Best Show Garden 2018 accolade.
The garden is being constructed by a regional team of award-winning and highly-skilled landscape contractors, including some that have previously won a prestigious BALI National Landscape Award, with most of the hard landscape materials sourced by BALI Registered Affiliate member CED Stone Group, masters of natural stone.
This garden itself is just one of the elements of ‘The Garden Party: Celebrating 20 years of Gardening Scotland’ celebration. As well as cocktails and cakes for everyone, there will also be The Secret Gin Garden, which is sure to cause a stir whilst Grillo Outdoor Kitchens will host cooking demonstrations from some top-named chefs.
There are a limited number of special preview tickets available for Thursday 30 May. If you fancy a bit of opulence for a good cause, dig out those glad rags and join the show team for their charity gala dinner.
