This garden won an RHS silver gilt medal. It charmed many seasoned designers with its beautiful blend of sleek modern walling with traditional paving setts and hardwood engineering.
This is an extract of the brief which was praised as a prime example:
The garden aims to draw attention to the links between nature, mindfulness and mental
health. A sculpture depicts a state of meditation and suggests a link between nature and our
own deeper nature. The infinity pool represents how we can access a state of infinite
stillness through meditation.
I want to evoke the state of ‘tranquil, but alert presence’ that comes from mindfulness
practices and from being within a beautiful garden. The aim is to combine contemporary
design elements and some strong geometry with some more traditional materials and
looseness in the planting – Richard Roger
