CouCou Design, Sarah Keyser
The City Twitchers Garden offers a relaxing, informal space that has been created to encourage and protect garden birds in the smallest of urban spaces. This garden demonstrates how to create a wildlife-rich garden when space is at a premium. Woven in willow, like a nest, a spherical bird hide provides an attractive focal point and has a practical role.
Within it, seating allows bird watchers to cocoon themselves, as they wait and watch. The feathery chamomile lawn softens the design and the strong circular shapes create a contemporary feel and flowing space. The design balances natural rustic elements with contemporary shapes and materials, demonstrating how wildlife- / bird-friendly gardens do not have to compromise on style.
Congratulations to all the winners of this year's RHS People's Choice awards – the only vote to be decided by the public.
We're a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone's life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
