This garden features the studio/office of a garden designer who works from home. The studio is powered by the very latest in photovoltaic technology, and Skyshades panels on the green roof supply all the power needed. The building has been designed by Philip Game, renowned for his extraordinary designs.

The planting incorporates a wide range of habitats - woodland, meadow, water, hedgerow, herbs and annuals - and features nearly 200 species in this wonderfully biodiverse garden.

Skyshades hopes to inspire visitors to construct their own home office in their gardens and to create spaces that offer food and shelter to our ever-diminishing wildlife.
