The Telegraph Garden
This garden is a contemporary and contemplative composition that takes inspiration from the making of the English landscape, the Japanese approach to garden design and modern abstract art.
The garden is a representation of England as a wooded landscape from which openings were cleared to allow settlement, civilisation and cultivation. English native trees and shrubs are used in a graphic way to create an understorey that expresses the way a field pattern has been superimposed on the countryside. Blocks of box, yew and beech form the field landscape. The humble hazel, symbol of the working forest, is shown in a new ‘designed’ form. Oak features as a structure – a colonnade of columns crafted from English oak.
