Christopher Bradley-Hole is extremely well known to all Chelsea Flower Show visitors, but here is some more background information about him.
Christopher Bradley-Hole is one of the world’s foremost landscape designers. His projects have had a far-reaching influence on the way contemporary design has developed.
Practising originally as an architect, his passion for plants and landscape led him to a re-focus on the design of gardens and public landscapes. A series of iconic gardens made at the Chelsea Flower Show have been followed by international commissions for private and public projects and for organisations including the BBC, Arsenal Football Club and recently the landscape for the Stirling Prize Winning Sainsbury Laboratory in the Cambridge Botanic Garden. Currently he is developing an innovative and sensitive design for the award-winning property developer Spink Property for an historic landscape near Henley on Thames.
Christopher is the bestselling author of two books, the minimalist garden and Making the Modern Garden. He has lectured extensively on his work across the USA, Australia, Germany, Sweden and China and has taught landscape design and construction to students on the Diploma Course at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
