Rae has received show garden commissions from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and The Abbeyfield amongst others. Projects have included a sensory care home garden and a public visitor space garden as well as Chelsea trade stands. In 2019 Rae's Mindfulness garden at RHS Chatsworth was rewarded with a Gold medal, Best in Category and People's Choice award.

Another award-winning show garden was Rae's Healing Urban Garden at Hampton Court.

Show garden projects provide the opportunity to be truly creative and to design meaningful spaces for the visiting public to enjoy. It is a real pleasure to bring a message or specific information to people visiting the shows through a garden space, while collaborating with charities, brands, sculptors and sponsors. The added elements of theatre and showmanship for the engagement of visitors makes for very exciting and multi-faceted results.
