ROLLS-ROYCE WILDLIFE GARDEN COMPETITION

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is calling on aspiring UK designers, between the ages of 5–11, to design what they would like to be included in Rolls-Royce’s Wildlife Garden.

Drawing on their own creativity, the sky is literally the limit! Some examples to get started could include a unique plant or flower, a bee corridor or an insect hotel.

The marque’s designers will judge all entries and select an overall winner whose design will be brought to life – a true once-in-a-lifetime, money-can’t-buy prize.

THE RESULTS

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to announce the winner in its competition that invited children aged 5-11 to design new features for the Wildlife Garden at the Home of Rolls-Royce, Goodwood. Established as part of the original landscaping when the plant was built in the early 2000s, the Wildlife Garden supports a wide variety of plants, insects, birds and animals native to the South of England.

The new features are central to a rejuvenation project being carried out in partnership with Chichester District Council and the South Downs National Park Trust, to reflect changes in conservation thinking and practice over the past two decades.

ABOUT THE WILDLIFE GARDEN

The Wildlife Garden occupies a small, secluded area of the Goodwood site to the south of The Drive, just inside the main gates. It provides excellent habitat for a wide variety of plants, insects, birds and animals native to the south of England. Other frequent visitors include our colony of around 250,000 English honey bees who are responsible for producing ‘the Rolls-Royce of honey’.

Location

Tucked away close to the South Downs National Park, the Wildlife Garden sits within Chichester’s proposed Strategic Wildlife Corridor.

Rose Garden

The Phantom Rose flourishes in a lavender-fringed flowerbed near the reflection ponds beside the manufacturing plant.

Living roof

The roof of the main building is planted with thousands of hardy, low-maintenance sedum plants. Covering over 32,000 square metres (around eight acres) it’s the largest living roof in the UK and a haven for wildlife.

Landscaping

Over 400,000 plants and trees of more than 120 species are part of our 42-acre site.

Large central lake

As well as a home for numerous wild birds, it is also a heat sink for the manufacturing plant's climate control system.

Rolls-Royce Apiary

Home to 250,000 English Honey Bees in six specially-built hives.
