Sudstech Permeable Paving at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show
The Mypod Garden is a large multi-award winning show garden that exhibited at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show 2013. Though most gardens at these events are designed only to be stage sets that are dismantled once the show is over, the Mypod Garden is a fully functional, working garden that is being rebuilt at St. Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds for permanent instalment. The garden is the result of group collaboration; designed and built by Seven Peas in a Pod, a team of recently graduated Landscape Architecture students from Leeds Metropolitan University. A diverse team from very different backgrounds, the group offers a range of skills and experience.
