The Halifax Garden - 'These Four Walls' - Silver

Silver medal garden by Stuart Perry. This garden aims to show how a good garden design can create a garden that becomes a key room in the modern home.

The halifax garden

Stuart Perry, the garden designer, set out to design a fresh, inviting garden that contained the The halifax garden essence of the Scandinavian countryside. The garden aims to create a feeling of being immersed in a relaxing environment whilst still retaining the functionality of a modern garden.

Planting is a green canvas of grasses with The halifax garden splashes of colour from other plants including Iris, Hemerocallis, Knautia, roses, Thalictrum and Aquilegia. Planting is soft, simple and easy to care for.

The halifax garden A unique feature in this garden is the 'Sove' summerhouse, which forms the rest zone of the garden. A handcrafted bench from New Zealand sits at the far end of the garden near a glass waterfall. Stuart believes that the glass wall of this waterfall is the largest single piece of glass ever used in the UK and possibly Europe.
