Savills Garden

The Savills Garden

Promoting sustainable development at The Chelsea Flower Show 2023

Designer Mark Gregory of Landform Consultants fully captured Savills’ brief of sustainable design in this “Plot to Plate” garden. A first of its kind, the garden featured a fully working kitchen with adjoining dining area where Chelsea pensioners were invited to enjoy a three course lunch service during the show. Chef Sam Buckley is passionate about where his ingredients come from; and for this experience a lot of the produce could be sourced directly from The Savills Garden.

The garden was constructed in less than three weeks, using no cement or plastic. Mason Navarro Pledge worked with Landform Consultants on this project. We justified the structures and advised on the foundations, including the 2m high retaining wall. The garden walls were built off cement free footings, using reclaimed bricks and lime mortar on the face and unfired clay and straw blocks behind. After the show, the garden will be relocated to a children’s residential home in Nottinghamshire.

The Savills Garden was awarded the Silver-Gilt medal at the show.
