The 2018 Lifestyle Garden Design Show
Take a journey through a horticultural cosmos of spaces within spaces, of distinctive gardens that come together in perfect harmony, all at the annual Lifestyle Garden Design Show. Curated for visitors by Lifestyle College and Lifestyle Home Garden, the 2018 Lifestyle Garden Design Show once again shifts up a gear, and the stage is set for a show that is innovative, fresh and brimming with creative gardening and design ideas to suit a wide range of tastes and preferences. We have created a spatial kaleidoscope of patterns, levels, colours and textures. Held at the height of the growing season, the Garden Design Show is designed to inspire, excite and share ideas, products and beautiful plants. It is another leg of the ongoing voyage of pleasure, discovery and creative spirit that epitomises this event, which has become a much-anticipated affair on the gardening calendar for the past 21 years.
This year boasts a new layout that allows for more public interaction. A main path through the show space is connected on both ends by hubs that incorporate central features. Secondary paths that branch off from the main walkway are treated as ‘designer’ strips that relate to the garden spaces through which they pass. These are also fully accessible to the public. The interconnecting paths have allowed for small islands to be punctuated along the journey that in themselves are features of the show. Traditional spirit embraces contemporary styling, low-key minimalism links playfully with youthful frivolity, arid and ecological endorse refined vogue, and utility flirts with designer chic in a dramatic interplay of craft and substance. With integration aforethought and living space paramount, the gardens showcase harmony – both in our own relationship with outdoor living space and the seamless unity of home and garden. Gardens vary from conservative and safe to avant-garde, utilitarian to modish, and feature complete gardens as well as elements within gardens that can offer ideas aplenty and oodles of inspiration.
Visit the Lifestyle Garden Design Show – open to the public with free entry from 10 February 2018 – and be inspired by the nine fully integrated gardens that not only take visitors on a gardening journey, but also showcase pertinent and innovative garden designs that can easily be replicated in your home and garden!
