The Evolution of Jet – A Journey from Jurassic to Gemstone
The Evolution of Jet
Bronze medal winner
This garden depicts the evolution of jet, from its Jurassic beginnings as fossilised wood from the monkey puzzle tree (Araucaria araucana), through to the skill of the craftsperson who reveals its beauty in the form of a gemstone.
Coastal planting depicts the origins of jet, and significant features include the Araucaria, fossilised jet and a water feature. The coastal plants used suit a sandy, well drained soil and can cope in times of drought and high winds. Harmonious shades of silver, lilac, pink and white have been used, with accents of black to complement the jet and the coastal surroundings.
