At the tender age of 27, Hugo Bugg has received an award landscaping few dare hope for an entire career.

It may also be the first designer in the illustrious history Tweet "Fric GOLD! # Rhschelsea" show to receive his medal at 8.30 clock.

Your RBC Waterscape Garden is a combination of message and aesthetics that highlight the work of the Royal Bank of Canada Blue Water Project is a 10-year commitment to the conservation of freshwater resources in the world. Gardens with a message are notoriously difficult to achieve, but Bugg said he enjoyed the short.

"I helped. It was a perfect short for a true garden show, and I like to take a concept and find ways to simplify and accessible and pleasing to the eye," he said.

Water trickles and pools in the garden – between the level of concrete and Corten steel catwalks in fashion – and that would be a show garden seep slowly into the soil not be, instead of in the sewer system.

Bugg said: "Given the severe flooding that we've seen in some parts of the UK, I wanted to show how even novice gardeners can use in their gardens by simple techniques, water management calls The Garden Visitor take responsibility for water management use..

"It mimics the natural way to reduce water velocity, favors the infiltration into the soil and the pressure on urban drainage. Hopefully, the public's attention on what can be done to tighten the shower will reduce, put to good use to promote and natural filtration through a garden, especially in urban environments. "

Bugg grew up in Devon and was inspired to shake hands with garden design, as his parents moved to a house with a large garden. "I was with my father on an ambitious project to restore the gardens again. Given the emerging new landscape was so exciting," he added.

This is not happening by chance. The Royal Horticultural Society there to encourage and promote the cause of horticulture and Bugg is one of his greatest hits. Is the product of a concerted effort by the company to promote new talent in the world of garden design and has been since 2010, when he won his young designer of the year was the big news.

Then came through the ranks of show garden, flower garden design shows in Tatton Park and Hampton Court before entry into the center of attention much brighter Chelsea. "Nothing rivals Chelsea for his legacy and reputation worldwide," Bugg said. "I think that all designers strive for a garden here at some point to point in his career. Attracts thousands of visitors and millions of viewers around the world, so that it will show an incredible opportunity, what we are trying to achieve, with the garden and sustainable water management. "

This aging process led him to propose to build his show garden like a seasoned pro. "Nothing has gone seriously wrong in the design," he smiled. "I have a fantastic team there been. Many prefabricated elements, so we had to put in. A few trees come into leaf in time, but we found a replacement." He seems unimpressed with the process, but then that has all four years.

He might have become the golden boy of the right hand, but do not be drawn with talk of the new generation. "My goal and hope was to get the highest award available. I realize now that I was facing a lot of big names in the industry and it's great that there are so many other young designers here, but I really competes against everything me . together wanted to make sure that this garden was the highest level.
