The Stolen Soul Garden

Container Gardens

Human emotions are given form in this garden, which seeks to draw attention to ‘invisible’ mental
health issues.

The living wall at the rear represents the dark scope of emotions such as fear, emptiness and despair, while the planting within the containers symbolises empathy, joy and light. The black water pool is a symbol of life and connects all the elements in the garden by reflecting them in the water.

The amethyst crystal symbolises the spiritual thread that runs through our lives.
