Overview

We were commissioned by LDC Garden Designs to create an infinity well as a focal piece for this RNIB show garden at the Chelsea Flower Show which was sponsored by Countryside Properties.

Goals

The aim of the garden is to stimulate the ‘mind’s eye’ by encouraging visitors to engage in an intimate experience of touch, sound, taste and aroma. Throughout the space we will use contrasting materials and textures which will challenge visitors to use their imagination and memory.

Process

The garden is loosely divided into four zones – open woodland, damp/wet shady woodland, temperate prairie border and Mediterranean/arid border. Naturalistic planting covers horizontal and vertical plant beds to contrast and soften the hard landscaping.
