Howle Hill Nursery
The Japanese landscape technique of ‘shakkei’, meaning ‘borrowed landscape’ is explored here. The rolling Malvern Hills provide the backdrop that is ‘borrowed’, making the garden appear as if it is part of the larger landscape.
The garden draws its inspiration from the Japanese tea garden, where a connection to the wholeness of nature and our position within it is key.
This garden is a place where we can observe, find calm and a sense of nourishment.
The emphasis of green within the garden exudes a calming and soothing effect, while the use of water and rock reflects the attachment we have to the natural landscape. The use of sawn Forest of Dean stone and timber represents how our natural resources have evolved through the 21st century.
