Garden Gallery: Deakin Lock’s Growing Together Vegetable Garden

Deakinlock vegetable garden

This is a 2008 entry to the Chelsea Flower Show from Deakin Lock.  I think it is fantastic for is very raised beds that provide access to people who can’t get down to the level of lesser beds (and they are nicely designed too!).  I am also pleased with the color of the coop and how it plays well with the lavender.  And treating an artichoke like a mini tree is fun idea for a kitchen garden space don’t you think?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
