Cloudy Bay Garden

Show Gardens
Landscape designer Sam Ovens’ garden design is inspired by Cloudy Bay’s 30-year wine-making heritage at the pioneering winery in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. Designed to be a secluded retreat in which to escape, it is a serene space that evokes memories as one savours the experience of the garden.
The primary material is western red cedar timber, used in the construction of the deck, boardwalks and cabin. A reflective pool adds a sensory element to the design and has connotations of setting sail and drifting away or escaping.

The planting palette is made up primarily of heathers, pines and grasses - a bold and simple selection. There are no boundaries to the garden, increasing the sense of freedom to be enjoyed from within.

After the show, Cloudy Bay will donate elements of the garden design to Horation's Garden, a charity that creates gardens in NHS spinal injury centres.
