A Space for Possibilities: The Modular Container Garden – Bord Bia Bloom

LOUISE CHECA - Small Show Garden

Can we achieve everything in a small space? This innovative garden demonstrates that anything is possible when it comes to creative garden design and even the smallest of plots can be transformed into versatile spaces through clever, adaptable modular features.

Following a hexagon pattern inspired by bees, this garden can be fully customised at the design stage. Many elements within the modular design are mobile and can be easily moved to suit the needs of the owners, whether that is to follow the sun through the course of the day, to change with the growing needs of your family, or to be transported to a new garden when moving homes.

The planting scheme has been chosen to give year-round interest, and includes many edible plants to showcase how we can grow our own food, connect with nature, and provide biodiversity even in a small area.
