Inspired by the Scandinavian idea of 'lagom', the garden provides a space full of balance, where one can relax, entertain and have all the comforts of a contemporary garden whilst keeping nature in mind. It brings together modern design and nature, allowing wildlife to thrive in harmony with people in a functional garden for everyone to enjoy.

Natural stone is be used to reflect the theme, whilst also providing homes for wildlife. Designing for wildlife need not compromise the aesthetic quality of a garden.

The focal point is a garden room for relaxation with a biodiversity-friendly green roof and crittall-effect windows, which will provide a frame for the colourful planting behind.
