The Foundations for Growth Garden has been designed as an inspirational space, in an education setting, for visitors to learn and reflect and discover their potential. The garden was inspired by the designers’ own educational journeys as career-changer students.

The planting rhythm and ever-increasing blocks of hedging give a feeling of sustained growth. Stone, metal and modern materials represent both traditional foundations and new approaches to learning. Colours and textures offer contrast and harmony, allowing the visitor to explore the shifting views through the garden, suggesting hidden potential and changes in outlook as you learn.

The garden highlights the importance of gaining hands-on experience with any skill. By working together with Capel Manor College’s students and Provender Nurseries, VaRa Garden Design has created foundations for learners to help them develop a successful future in horticulture and garden design.
