This contemporary woodland garden was inspired by the battle to beat cancer.

The progress of the charity organisation was represented by the inclusion of four large rectangular pools that increased in size from the front to the back of the garden. From within these pools, a series of computer-generated raindrop-like ripples created a sequence of movement from the rear of the garden, towards the front.

The backdrop to the garden was a ‘thought wall’ – where steel rings cast bubble-shaped shadows onto an almond-rendered wall.

Key plants included 30 large tree ferns and Antarctic beech (Nothofagus antarctica). These are both southern hemisphere plants, which created an exotic wood and a series of glades, planted with shade and sun-loving plants. The plant scheme itself relied predominately on green plants with differing textures.
