The One Show Garden

Designed by Vicky Stothard. This family garden, designed by The One Show competition winner Vicky Stothard, provides a view of a garden from a child’s perspective.

The garden is designed to be viewed from below, as though seen from the floor of a forest. The plants and sculptural features are large and towering, to make the viewer feel small and child-like again.

The idea behind the garden is to bring the family together away from the distractions of technology and the fast pace of modern life, promoting a more traditional sort of family time, but in an untraditional setting.

This is a place where parents can teach their children about the importance of nature and plants. Insect-friendly planting and bug hotels made from natural materials such as dried bamboo and old books offer children the chance to learn more about the natural world.

The garden is also somewhere for children to learn where the food they eat comes from and how it is grown, encouraging an interest in cooking and healthy eating.
