The Brewin Dolphin Garden

Designed by Matthew Childs. This is a garden about possibilities and nurturing potential for the future. The calm, tranquil spaces in this year's garden surrounded by fresh, lush, planting reflect Brewin Dolphin's long heritage of nurturing and preserving wealth.

However, there are also bold, engaging elements throughout the garden such as patinated copper archways, generous paths and sculpture which symbolise emerging opportunities and Brewin Dolphin's forward thinking and relevant approach. Finally investing in relationships is a key part of the garden with an open sociable entertaining space.

A fresh colour palette of greens, yellows, whites and creams help create a tranquil mood in the garden with a lush yet delicate mix of perennials, ferns, hostas and grasses. They weave beneath the dappled canopies of multi stemmed Betula nigra and Acers and are punctuated with the dense, loosely globe like forms of Cryptomeria japonica 'Globosa Nana'.

As with the hard landscaping there are contrasts in mood within the planting with accents of claret and purple which symbolise preserved wealth from a nurtured approach.  Although not designed to be specifically from one geographic area, there are strong Asiatic influences within the planting scheme.
