Kate Gould’s ‘Greenfingers Charity Garden’ designed and built for Chelsea 2019 featured in national press across the UK, highlighting the work that this wonderful charity does for children’s hospices around the UK. Elements of the garden were relocated to Richard House Children’s Hospice in London for children to enjoy after the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
“It’s a place where families with complex needs can come together for play, relaxation and reflection.”
Jim Carter (Actor) – comments featured in The Telegraph
“It’s got fun things like a cargo net where the brothers and sisters to play in and let off steam. The benefits for these families are immediate. Whether it is the peace of it or something fun to do, their minds can be taken somewhere else – even just for a moment.”
Imelda Staunton (Actor) – comments featured in The Telegraph
Kate Gould’s ‘New West End Garden’ designed and built for Chelsea 2018 featured in national press across the UK.
“Inspired by traditional London garden squares, Kate Gould designs a pocket-sized urban oasis.”
Clare Foggett, Editor The English Garden
Kate’s RHS Chelsea garden ‘City Living’ featured in international, national and regional press.
“The highlight — literally — of the space is the bespoke terrazzo inside stair wall down one side that, with the flick of a switch, emits thousands of twinkling, sparkling dots of light, creating a fairytale effect after dark.”
Pattie Barron in The Evening Standard May 2017
“But it was Kate Gould’s City Living which won my gold star – and, as it happens, was awarded Gold and the Best Fresh Garden award – for providing genuinely accessible ways of how urban gardeners could green their space.”
Alice Vincent in the Telegraph May 2017
Kate’s RHS Chelsea garden which she designed with Alan Titchmarsh ‘From The Moors To The Sea’ featured in international, national and regional press.
“I needed a mate with a finger on the pulse in terms of supply and logistics, construction and organisation and I found the perfect partner in Kate Gould”
Alan Titchmarsh – The Telegraph May 2017
Kate’s Chelsea Garden ‘The Wasteland’ featured in national and regional press all around the UK.
“Kate Gould’s ‘The Wasteland’ will show how salvaged from corrugated steel panels to (brace yourselves) crazy paving can be used as havens for wildlife and people in unsolved urban areas”
The Telegraph May 2013
“Kate is the master – or even the mistress – of designing these small gardens, which are actually really difficult to do. It’s all about arranging the space and she’s done a really good job here….I think it’s really quite a special garden.”
Andy Sturgeon – BBC2 coverage of Chelsea Flower Show, May 2011
“It would make an ideal small urban plot. Our familiar London plane trees are barely recognisable as a pleached green wall; a clever way of providing a canopy without the massive root system.”
Pattie Barron – The Evening Standard, 25 May 2011
“The Chelsea Flower Show, as ever, was buzzing with new ideas. It’s quite a task to scour the showground for your top 10. This year was no exception. I loved the bench by Kate Gould in the Magistrates Garden: it says what it is and adds a touch of humour”
Bunny Guinness – The Sunday Telegraph, 29 May 2011
“The bloomin’ good garden, designed by Kate Gould to celebrate 650 years of the magistracy, was awarded a Silver Gilt Medal…The garden has other pleasing touches, with the bench cushions made by prisoners working with the Fine Cell Work charity and a new rose by specialist nursery Fryers.”
Law Society Gazette June 2011
“How do you give a city garden a sense of seclusion – even if you are overlooked on all sides and you are only a few feet from a main road? Landscape designer Kate Gould pulled it off brilliantly, making this cool, urban retreat feel secluded and tranquil, even though it was slap bang in the centre of this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.”
Pattie Barron – Evening Standard Homes & Property, 9 June 2010
“Kate Gould’s garden gave me a different, but equally enjoyable experience. She had sunk her sitting area, so I felt protected and relaxed within it…My daughter Unity (a landscape architect student) found it difficult to tear herself away from this magical garden.”
Bunny Guinness – The Sunday Telegraph, 30 May 2010
“When seating facing the fire, it is possible to look straight through the glass-encased flames at the water feature beyond. Subtle – but quite a show-stopper.”
Joanna Fortnum – The Daily Telegraph Gardening Section, 26 May 2010
“Kate Gould’s ‘Eco Chic’ was a subtle blend of environmental awareness with stylish design… Balancing chic, contemporary design with recycled or reclaimed materials can often be a challenge – by their very nature they are not usual bedfellows. But in this garden, the designer managed to achieve a great harmony.”
‘Take Chelsea Home’ book – Chris Young for the RHS, Spring 2010
“The winning Chelsea garden showed off Kate’s flair for handling, unusual materials, textural constraints and bespoke features”
The Daily Telegraph, May 10 2008
“In the Chic Gardens category, designers pack interest into the smallest areas. Here in Upstairs / Downstairs (representing an urban basement garden), a day bed has been hidden among shade-tolerant planting…”
The Garden, July 2007
“A light and luxurious basement garden”
Kate’s Chelsea 2007 garden in ‘Big Plans, Small Gardens’ book by Andy Sturgeon, Spring 2010
“Kate Gould won gold last year in Chelsea’s Chic Gardens category (also scooping Best in Category), with a dramatic, funky vision of a basement space, filled with lush, jungly planting, a daybed mounded with cushions, a trickling glass water feature and a balance of horticulture and decadence that was immensely appealing.”
The Daily Telegraph, May 10 2008
