The Hide Garden explores how gardens can transport us to memory spaces - places we love and feel happy in.
Inspired by a local nature reserve, the garden represents a small private piece of nature; a hideaway from a fast-paced world that evokes memories of a special place by the river where the client loved to spend time.
Willow panels and a bespoke screen play on the idea of hiding. A modern rustic viewing deck looks out onto a clear shallow pebble pond featuring playful circular stepping decks. Densely layered planting provides the backdrop and recalls the native flora and fauna of place. Upturned logs and a tree sculpture surround a weeping feature tree creating natural sculptures and homes for busy wildlife.
