Chelsea 2009

Laurent-Perrier Garden, 2008-2009

The first of Luciano’s RHS Chelsea show gardens was a signature execution of his design approach. Classical Italian design, controlled composition and understated elegance were all key elements and came together to win Gold.

 

The garden featured immaculately clipped layered hedging, sublime travertine marble, brimming water by Andrew Ewing, and a sculpture by Nigel Hall. Rich blood reds and luscious plum tones were the key colours of the herbaceous planting, with opulent peonies and the ethereal foliage of bronze fennel taking centre stage.
