People looking for garden inspiration could consider using printed images in their outdoor space after one garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show was designed to highlight the link between art and the outdoors.

A Canon printer and printer supplies were used to produce the large format images, which were then face mounted on to Perspex so that they could survive outdoors.

Sue Thompson, of Thompson's Galleries which created the urban garden, said the pictures were used to show "how art can be an integral part of the structure of a garden".

She added that she hopes to stimulate debate about art being placed outdoors.

The expert said that having printed pictures in a garden can help to brighten up outdoor spaces by adding an extra layer of depth.

This year's Chelsea Flower Show, which is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society, ran from May 24th to 28th. The Best in Show award was given to Cleve West's garden, which was sponsored by the Daily Telegraph.
