Visitors to this year's Grand Designs Live, London, can look forward to being inspired by the Show's theme 'Contemporary New England', with beautiful colour combinations typical of this stunning part of the world.
Featured for the first time at the 2011 show will be a 'Garden of the Future' as well as lots of ideas to make the most of your garden now that longer days are making an appearance. The Grand Gardens area of the show is packed full of ideas and inspiration, tools, supplies and solutions from innovative furniture designs to dramatic water features.
As part of the Grand Gardens section you will be able to get free garden design consultations and advice - visitors can pop into the Garden Design Studio, which will be hosted by resident celebrity gardener James Alexander-Sinclair, (pictured) with their plans and ideas to get top advice and direction from an array of industry professions.
The 'Garden of the Future' will feature in the Grand Technology section to showcase the latest and coolest products in the gardening sector, from computerised indoor plant pots to solar powered eco-friendly robot lawn mowers.
This year's show gardens will be designed using the theme 'Contemporary New England' showcasing an enviable kitchen garden complete with an outdoor kitchen and an allotment space, both demonstrating how even practical gardens can also be a space to be proud of.
Grand Designs Live London runs from Saturday 30 April to Sunday 8 May, 2011 at ExCeL London. Details of tickets and show information: www.granddesignslive.com
