Chelsea Flower Show 2015

20 May 2015 12:18

The Outdoor Room are delighted to have won a Silver-Gilt at RHS Chelsea Flower Show for 'The Beauty of Islam' garden designed by Kamelia Bin Zaal and sponsored by Al Barari. 

The Beauty of Islam is a garden designed to be a sanctuary in which to both relax and feel inspired. This garden is an RHS Chelsea Flower Show debut for Bin Zaal and Al Barari. The garden gives visitors the opportunity to explore the relationship between humankind and the earth, which is prominent in Islamic Culture. Planting and hard landscape patterns reflect those found within Islam. The poetry, calligraphy and textures within the garden reflect both the beauty of Arabic and Islamic cultures. A sculpture within the garden also represents Islamic art.

Four walls act as dividers within the garden, creating different rooms and enhancing the garden’s element of discovery with water flowing throughout. The wide variety of plants within the garden, including jasmine, rosemary and papyrus, represents the spread of Islam and Arab culture and the growth of the Arab empire through trade, most notably the Spice Route. The garden is Kamelia’s first show garden at Chelsea.
