BALLROOM dancing is set to go al fresco at the RHS Show Tatton Park as a Chester-based designer creates the Strictly Come Gardening Show Garden.
Raynershine Landscapes Ltd’s Kate Rayner, of Huxley, was inspired by the BBC programme Strictly Come Dancing and has designed a garden that encompasses the elegance and style of this type of dance.
The garden combines practical elements with gentle flowing curves to generate movement and it will also include a sunken seating area, bespoke steel sculpture and a serpentine rill leading to the mirror-ball water feature.
The romantic waltz is represented with grasses and perennials in soft, pastel tones.
These will contrast with the bold foliage and vibrant colours of the Paso Doble.
Kate is a seasoned RHS Show Tatton Park exhibitor.
She created gardens for the event in 2001, 2002 and 2005, when she achieved a Silver Gilt medal for every garden.
