Lancaster’s Garden of Renewal, Nature’s Embrace

Show Gardens

The vibrant tapestry of colours and textures of the garden are carefully arranged to evoke a sense of tranquillity and wonder. With a theme of biodiversity, sustainability and healing, the garden demonstrates a harmonious blend of native flora.
Key features of the garden include meandering pathways, sensorial water, and secluded seating areas, perfect for contemplation or socialising.
Inspired by the intricate beauty of natural ecosystems the ambition of the design is to represent the life cycle. The garden caters to nature enthusiasts, seekers of serenity, and those passionate about sustainable living, offering a serene retreat and a sanctuary for local wildlife.

Key sustainability points

  • The garden employs sustainable building methods and materials such as reclaimed wood, recycled tiles, and permeable paving to minimise environmental impact and promote eco-conscious design practices.
  • A sculpture crafted from reclaimed materials symbolises the beauty of sustainability. This eco-friendly installation creatively repurposes discarded items.
  • The garden incorporates xeriscaping, which focuses on water conservation through drought-tolerant plantings.

Relocation and repurposing

After the show the garden will be moved to John Walsh & Fred Wigg Towers Housing Estate, in London.
