Time to Relect Garden

Designed by Adam Frost. The garden sees a fusion of natural stone boulders, copper rills and ornamental plants to capture countryside memories - inspiring people to explore the great outdoors and recreate their own memories.

Time to Relect Garden

The garden has four different levels to create a pathway and sense of movement. The levels are linked together by natural stone boulders – giving the option to explore the garden by jumping from boulder to boulder.

The first level houses an oak arbour with a heather clad roof, inspired by nature and the north Devon moors. As well as being a space for the family to cook, eat and socialise, the arbour’s roof planting will provide food for bees and butterflies. Under the carved timber seats are log stores that provide shelter for insects, while birds are encouraged to pay a visit to the carved oak bird feeder.

Moving down a level brings us to a detailed carved stone boulder, that feeds the ponds which attract dragonflies and damsel flies. Each level is linked by a copper rill that references Devon geology.

Time to Relect Garden

As you move through the garden, the planting graduates from cool shade-loving woodland plants around the arbour into yellow, white and blue planting reminiscent of English countryside in spring. Carved timber seats inspired by natural, organic shapes are also located throughout the garden – providing the opportunity for people to sit and reflect in the colourful surroundings.
