The garden will be adorned with atmospheric planting and natural stone, encouraging thoughtful connections with the natural world. It will evoke the beauty and romance of wild places in the British landscape with perennials, rushes, grasses and meadow flowers growing around an intricate pattern of pools in Chilmark limestone.

Copper detailing will draw inspiration from the mineral rich upland streams and rills of north Wales and Dartmoor, while a stepping-stone walkway will lead across an expanse of water to a simple seating area on a group of boulders.

At the rear of the garden a glade of tall, graceful, multi- stemmed birch trees will frame the scene.
