About the garden

Designed as an antidote for busy city living, this lush pocket garden illustrates how best to maximise every part of our outdoor space.  

Vegetation cloaks the garden with textural, scented and edible plants offering enjoyable surroundings,
in which the occupants can connect with nature.

The green roof adds height and seasonal colour, while two strawberry trees, planted within feature pots, appeal to pollinators. A bronze sculpture provides a contemplative focal point adjacent to a simple timber bench.
