  • Designed by Darren Hawkes
  • Built by The Garden Builders with Wheelbarrow

This garden’s theme is sight loss.  With straight paths leading to three interwoven circles made from different materials and handmade opaque glass screens, the design offers sighted people a perspective on a range of sight conditions.
 
Planting throughout the garden features contrasting colours and silhouettes, drawing the eye into and around the space. At the centre a large Robinia tree is surrounded by a curtain of stainless steel balls and cascading water.  This space stimulates the other senses, enhancing enjoyment of the garden.
 
The design demonstrates and celebrates that life can be enriched by maximising limited vision and engaging our other senses.
