Inspiration for the garden

The garden aims to provide inspiration and garden design solutions for small urban gardens. Water is used for its soothing, cooling effect. A variety of textures have been included for visual and tactile stimulation. Plants have been grouped in different ‘islands’ – each group having different cultural requirements, for example the succulents require less water than the plants grouped in the meadow. This allows the gardener to indulge in different planting styles, whilst still being able to maintain all the plants in the garden to their individual cultural requirements without too much effort.

Plants have been selected in order to lure a variety of birds, insects and small reptiles into the garden and, in so doing, bring nature back into the urban environment.
