The Cirrus Garden

Balcony Gardens

The Cirrus Garden combines the spectacle of a show garden with a real-life sustainable garden focused on increasing the biodiversity within urban areas and providing a tranquil setting for mental health.

It features wildflowers, perennials, herbs, a seating area, a vegetable garden and a fish pond and is inspired by the designer’s experience of living with an 18th-floor balcony garden known as The Cloud Garden. Visitors can take elements of the concept, plants and design and replicate them on their own balconies.

As humans launch telescopes to view the stars, moons and cirrus clouds on other planets, dreaming of visiting them in our distant future, they will also look to The Cirrus Garden as an example of how urban residences could look in our immediate future.
