On Tropic

Young Designer Gardens

‘On Tropic’ celebrates the sub-tropical gardens found in Devon and Cornwall, reimagining this type of planting in a domestic urban or suburban northerly context. In an exotically planted British garden, traditional plants are replaced with a tropical palette that thrives in our warming climate. With climate change in mind, this garden speculates upon our future garden design and planting.

An intimate, relaxed atmosphere is intended. Simple and natural materials are used together with immersive, hardy exotic planting, alongside some more tender species that may become commonplace, considering our rapidly warming climate. These combined elements create a stimulating, yet tranquil experience that evokes the spirit of the sub-tropical gardens of the South West.
