Ann-Marie Powell Gardens
The Outdoor Room
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.
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.
