Making the Modern Garden

6pm Drinks and Canapes at Rodmarton Manor

7pm Talk – “ Making the Modern Garden”, followed by a delicious two course dinner by the renowned Mary Rose Weston.

Andy is one of the country’s greatest garden designers and he’s coming to Gloucestershire!

This informative, entertaining and humorous talk kicks off with a whirlwind tour of the history of garden design cramming over 2000 years into a few minutes to explain how modern gardens evolved and how my work fits into garden design today. The main part of the talk, which is woven with anecdotes, focuses on my own portfolio and journeys from tiny roof gardens to country gardens via Chelsea Flower Show and abroad. Along the way I will explain the design philosophy behind each project and impart plenty of practical information about plants, garden construction and anything else that crops up!

Andy is one of the UK’s leading garden designers. Inspired by art and architecture his work explores the relationship between plants and structure and the wider landscape. His modern designs are a fusion of natural materials and contemporary styling which have become known for their timeless architectural qualities, innovative planting and sculptural characteristics. Andy is the winner of nine RHS Gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show and 3 times ‘Best in Show’. Both The Sunday Times and House and Garden Magazine place him in the Top Ten list of landscape designers in Britain with recent accolades including Gold Awards from Singapore, S.Korea and Philadelphia. Andy lectures around the world. He is a published author, journalist and broadcaster and an active commentator in the international garden design sector. His work is frequently featured in books, magazines and newspapers worldwide.

This will be an amazing opportunity to meet him and places will be limited to 60 guests.
