Cherry Carmen’s passion for plants and nature is stamped all over her work. She started her design and landscaping business four years ago. Now aged just 29, she is earning a reputation for marrying unique designs with a solid knowledge of plantsmanship. The result? Living art!
Immerse is Cherry’s first solo show garden project. She has created a formidable design and her vision is being delivered by an equally formidable team! She says,
“Builds like this are not for the faint hearted and I have to have complete confidence that my landscaper can make it happen. Living Landscapes give me that confidence – look what they’ve achieved!”
Of Perennial, she says,
“I’ve just completed a second round of chemotherapy for kidney cancer, so I understand the value of the support they can provide. Anyone emerging from illness will understand the need to get back to ‘real life’ and I’m delighted to help highlight the value of Perennial’s work in the way I know best – by painting a story with plants”.
Tecwyn Evans has been in the landscaping business for twenty years. He heads up Living Landscapes, a multi-award-winning landscaping company based in West Sussex. Collaborating with the best talent in garden design, his team creates inspirational garden spaces, built to the highest standards, using the best quality materials.
Living Landscapes has built a reputation for excellence as a show garden constructor. Unflappable problem solvers, the team’s impeccable work has earned them five Silver Gilt medals and a People’s Choice award since 2013. Tecwyn is a passionate supporter of emerging garden designers, and proud to sponsor Cherry Carmen’s Immerse.
“Perennial does great work for people in need in our industry and I’m proud to be working with them on this garden. Collaborating with Cherry is going to be fantastic too, I’ve known her for a long time and will enjoy seeing her fulfil her ambition to create a garden at the world’s biggest annual flower show. It will also be exciting for us all to exhibit in the revived water gardens category.”
