Garden for DA (Dyslexia Action)
Two interlocking squares are dissected by a path that runs through the centre of this garden, where a jagged slate circle and dark pool represent the diagnosis of dyslexia.
In the first square, a grid of metal rods and mown grass suggest little growth, the path is broken up and the slate boulder seat is uninviting. Crossing the pool, the path leads through an area of meadow with small trees, symbolising growth. The path passes through the barrier of the wall and is bisected by a stepping stone pool that reflects the trees. At the end of this area, a sheltered slate seat allows a look back along the axis of the garden to a tree at the focal point, representing assimilation and access to knowledge.
