A GARDEN designed for an Ickenham-based developer has won a coveted gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.

London Square, of Swakeleys Road, commissioned designer Jo Thompson to create the artistic corner garden.

She won the top accolade in the Fresh Garden category for her innovative design, which included a mix of traditional and contemporary elements.

London Square sales and marketing director Rebecca Littler said: “Jo has captured the sense of tranquility and community embodied in this much-admired architectural design.”

The garden included white standard roses – a rare sight at Chelsea –as part of a green and white colour scheme.

Also incorporated were a marbled sculpture by Frederic Chevarin and an artistic steel bench.

London Square was founded in 2010 and its ethos is based around one of London’s most common architectural features: the square.
