Flood Re's Flood Resilient Garden

An Inspiring Flood Resilient Garden

If you are looking for inspiration of how to make your garden or outside space more resilient to surface water flood risks, then we suggest you take a look at the Flood Resilient Garden that was showcased by Flood Re at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

The visionary Flood Resilient Garden, created by Ed Barsley and Naomi Slade, is not just about landscaping; it’s about laying the groundwork for a more resilient future.

With extreme weather events becoming more frequent and severe, the adaptation of our gardens and outdoor space, of any size, will play an increasingly important role in preventing flooding.

Filled with ideas and features to improve flood resilience, this garden is both beautiful and purposeful and will respond and adapt to the challenges of heavy rain and surface water flooding by embracing the water as a feature and harnessing it for future use.

We can all learn from the ideas that have been created:
