A Beautiful Paradise is designed to inspire treasured memories. The garden presents a series of framed views, like pictures. White and purple irises and the branches of acers or Cornus florida appear to have been growing here for a hundred years; it is as though Shangri-La is waking from a long sleep. Climbing the winding stone steps, you can hear the whispering music of trees and water under the sedum roof – water spills from the waterfall and drips from rocks. Trees, flowers, a waterfall and stones have been interwoven in this design to create a scene that epitomises our precious natural world.

The garden is designed to evoke nostalgic thoughts and to soothe
the soul.

Expert commentary by Chris Young - Editor of The Garden

The combination of floaty, soft planting, the white cobble stones in the pond, and the dramatic sound of the waterfalls make this garden have an atmosphere of its own and transport you away from the bustle of the rest of Chelsea.
