Nathan Webster has been awarded a hat-trick of awards for his Off the Grid Garden, including the Best Young Designer Garden award at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2023.

His woodland design exhibits how an individual can live self-sustainably within nature, featuring beds of edibles, fire pit cooking station and an outdoor shower.

The RHS Young Designer of the Year category has been a feature at Tatton Park since 2009, open to entrants aged 28 and younger, to help create a stepping-stone into the garden design and landscaping sectors for the younger generation.

This year’s Young Designer winner, Nathan Webster says: “Throughout the years of the young designer competition being run, the standards have improved significantly. To be a part of this category is a massive achievement and will stay with me for the rest of my life.”

Webster’s garden, built by Wright Landscapes centres around a contemporary lodge, juxtaposed to the limited forest planting tones of foxgloves and ferns, with a rural path connecting the features representative of a forest clearing beneath an airy canopy of conifers.

Webster says: “Even before I became a landscape architect, I had a passion for nature and the outdoors. From my experience in 2015 creating a Back to Back Garden, I have aspired to design my own garden and influence garden enthusiasts whilst showcasing my designs.

“The main feature of the design is upcycling and reusing materials, something that can be implemented in any garden, and using an existing environment to its full potential, highlighting the benefits of adapted living.”

Webster’s Off the Grid Garden has also been award Best Construction (Young Designer Garden) and a Gold medal, with the People’s Choice awards yet to be announced until Friday at 4pm.
