Designers: Gary Hillery, Ken Walton, Steven Robson / Sponsors: Marshalls Paving, Rhododendron Trust, David Brooke Charity, Barbour Trust, Durham County Council, The Hedley Foundation / Contractor: Finchale Training College

This garden is decorative, recreational and includes homegrown produce, all elements that are important in a modern urban garden. The vegetable plot is circular and sectioned, with vegetables fanning out from a central display of peas and beans. A copper band around the edge of the plot is attractive and deters slugs and snails. To supplement the growing area, a living wall combines soft fruit, herbs and flowers to create a decorative and edible feature. The seating area and composter have been made at the College from off cuts from a furniture factory. Copper pipes within the composter heat run-off water for use in preparing vegetables or washing tools. The herbaceous border features perennial plants, creating maximum colour with minimum effort. Most of the plants used have been cultivated at Finchale, and after the show the garden will be rebuilt at the College, minimising its carbon footprint.
