New Wild Garden, Chelsea RHS

Green Roof Shelters

Our ongoing collaboration with John Little and Dusty Gedge, to design & produce small-scale structures/buildings that offer real urban-biodiversity possibilities. A ‘proper’ green roof of native wildflowers (and non-natives for extending the nectar season) growing on deep substrate, alongside invertebrate habitat panels, nesting for birds and bats, and a variety of forage materials.
This Green Roof Shelter is a reclaimed shipping container used as the centre-piece of Nigel Dunnett’s rainfall-only, Wild Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2011. It has since relocated to the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust Centre at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, and is used as a visitor centre building.
