Matthew Hardcastle

Our latest talented friend is self-taught designer Matthew Hardcastle who started at the top with his first ever show garden when he picked up a gold award as well as best award in category at this year’s RHS Tatton Park show.

Instant Landscapes were delighted to support Matthew by supplying and installing a range of supporting products to his precise specification.

The 31-year-old, from Doncaster, who gave up working as a visual manager for Marks & Spencer to set up his own business, gained the judges' approval at Tatton with his Shower Time garden, featuring a plunge pool and shower for the use of guests who have just had spa treatment at a boutique hotel.

Matthew started New Growth Garden Design about five years ago with "£2,000, a little white van and a spade." Now his business is turning over around £180,000 a year and he employs three people full-time and contractors when needed.

Matthew’s ambition is "to get to Chelsea Flower Show.” Good luck matt. We’ll be with you all the way.
