Balcony Gardens
By mixing reclaimed items with carefully selected new materials, The Restorative Garden demonstrates how to create a space which is environmentally conscious without compromising on aesthetic or quality.

Planting has been designed to attract pollinators and birdlife into the garden with fragrant trees, climbers and herbs providing a sensory experience for visitors. A water table doubles up as a birdbath and source of meditative sound, whilst reclaimed teak is used for practical shelving, a simple pergola, and lounge chairs from which the balcony can be enjoyed.

Salvaged terracotta planters with unique patina and texture flank the entrance to the space and decorate the rear wall. When night falls, soft lighting illuminates the planting and transforms the space.

This is a garden in which to relax, repair and restore.
