The Design Concept:

Reflecting the current economic climate, the concept behind the Austerity Garden is high design on a low budget. In being innovative with affordable materials the garden will showcase creative design solutions. Rather than disguising these materials, their raw and industrial qualities will be celebrated.

The inspiration has come from the designers personal design ethos that good design doesn't have to mean extortionate prices. With client budgets becoming restricted being innovative & creative with affordable materials has become a regular part of their design process. Mexican yards, for both planting and aesthetics, have also been a background influence.

About the Designers:

Jade Goto is a RHS Chelsea award winning landscape architect. In 2012 her practice created the QR Code Garden for Chelsea, a design that grabbed the public and media’s attention due to the cutting edge combination of technology and horticulture. Jade has a background and strong interest in culture and fine art,
which feeds into the designs to create inventive and inspiring landscapes.

Recent commissions have ranged from designing private spaces to large scale landscape projects & green wall designs. The practice has a broad knowledge base which combines Landscape Architecture, Horticulture, Technology, Ecology, Art & Design.

Jade works closely with Armando Raish of Treebox Ltd on design collaborations and Green Wall design. Treebox are leaders in urban greening solutions (including living walls), focusing on tackling what it considers to be two very important issues that face our growing urban population: air quality and food production in the urban environment.

Nick @ NM Garden Services Ltd replied to paul watson's discussion Stihl Hsa 86 overheating
"There is nowhere to screw a grease tube on. That's why you need to take the gearbox cover off and apply grease directly.
 Suggest you take another look at the machine. We know this is correct thing to do as we have 4 of them. "

"This is the battery hsa 86 Nick it only has 2 torx screws holding a plastic casing over the gearbox, the gearbox gets the odd bit of cuttings in which is not ideal as it is not sealed like the petrol ones."
