**Winner of the People’s Choice Award at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016**

Matthew has designed two show gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.  In 2016, his show garden, entitled ‘God’s Own Country – A Garden for Yorkshire’ was sponsored byWelcome to Yorkshire, and was inspired by the East Window at York Minster, the largest single expanse of medieval stained glass in Britain. The garden showcased the wealth of stunning scenery, iconic heritage, deep-rooted industries and skilled tradespeople that Yorkshire has to offer.  His garden won the esteemed People’s Choice Award at the show.

Matthew designed his first show garden at Chelsea Flower Show for Royal Bank of Canada.  His arid, zero irrigation ‘dry garden’ highlighted how important water management is in the way we garden today.
