‘Escape to The City’ was awarded Gold by the Royal Horticultural Society Tatton Park flower Show 2013. The garden also won Tony the prestigious ‘Young Garden designer of the Year’ award. The garden is a combination of all of the styles and practical requirements that clients often desire from an urban design but shy away from at the concept stage so this was a fantastic opportunity to showcase what can be done to provide privacy, use recycled materials, have a secluded entertaining area and a manageable opportunity to grow your own food for busy professionals and amateur gardeners. The garden takes all of the elements of the countryside that really inspire Tony and utilises them in an urban setting. The garden was named one of the most outstanding show gardens of 2013 by the ‘Garden Design Journal’.
