A Place to Meet

Did you know...

  • The striking wooden water towers are clad in charred timber created using the ancient Japanese art of carbonizing wood - Shou-Sugi-Ban
  • The pale coloured paving is set at an angle to the grey decking, drawing the visitors eye to the seating area, a 'take home' idea for any garden

About the garden

Each year the Association of Professional Landscapers creates a beautiful garden at Hampton Court to meet with the public and its members. It really is ‘a place to meet’. The space is always designed by a member, and this year the opportunity has fallen to Cherry Carmen and Farnborough-based landscape and supply company Kebur.

The garden focuses on large decked spaces and wide pathways. The sunken beds are planted with a muted palette of whites, creams and greens, with the occasional splash of colour running through. The planting aims to be inviting, dynamic and captivating near the front of the garden, and then around the seating areas, flowing and calming. The tall canopy is balanced by a huge specimen Acer in the corner, which frames the garden perfectly. The three clad towers have water movement to create interest and sound, and at night the area is lit through the planting. We look forward to meeting you.

Thanks also to Kebur, Creepers Nurseries, Landscape Plus, Ecodek and Shou-Sugi Ban.
