This year, a new medal is being awarded at RHS Chelsea Flower Show that recognises the role landscape contractors and their teams play in the realisation of a show garden. There will be one Best Construction Award, and it will be made from a shortlist of gardens that have been judged “excellent” for construction. Chelsea insiders know – and the judges’ tick-sheets record – that a garden does not win gold unless the build quality is outstanding, so for many contractors this recognition is long overdue.

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
