The Macmillan Legacy Garden offers a contemporary interpretation of an edge-of-woodland space. The planting is calm, soft and inviting around a large pod-like structure that offers a relaxing space to sit, and from where one can look over the garden and contemplate life’s journey. This is a calm outdoor space with a tranquil atmosphere where small groups or individuals can enjoy a quiet conversation or solitary contemplation.

The garden is created to encourage people to consider leaving a legacy or gift in their will to support the work of Macmillan Cancer Support. It is designed as a community space and one that could be attached to a Macmillan Care Centre. The green and white of the planting represents the primary colours of Macmillan’s brand. Ferns are plentiful with highlights of white herbaceous planting that includes the ‘Macmillan Nurse’ rose, which enjoys semi-shade.
