A semi-intensive roof garden displayed on the ground, Out of the Blue comprises three mounds of different drought-tolerant planting set against a decked area with occasional seating. Biodiversity and sustainability are key drivers in the garden’s design. A striking zigzag structure created from bright blue polypropylene string bisects the mounds, forming shadows and alternative perspectives.

Alan Gardner says, 'My designs are all about simplicity with a twist. Out of the Blue is a calm, Zen-like roof garden that is perfect for relaxation and is environmentally sound.'
