David Fountain Designs, Pulham Garden Crafts
This garden has been created for the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) in partnership with Countryside. The mind’s eye is the human ability to create images or scenes without the need for sight. This garden is designed to stimulate the mind’s eye through a series of contrasting sensory experiences.
Designed as a sensory garden for blind and partially sighted people, as well as those with sight, the space challenges the fully sighted viewer by sometimes blurring or distorting the image we expect to see. The garden is divided into four zones: open woodland, damp and shady woodland, prairie border and arid border. Water acts as a unifying element to link and emphasise the architectural features. The centrepiece is a beautiful glass cube water feature.
Vote for this garden for the People's Choice award.
We're a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone's life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
