A design inspired by childhood memories so often triggered by the natural world, this fantastic woodland wonderland featured natural play elements such as a hollow log for children to climb through, a stream for paddling, building dams or balancing on stepping stones and a playful pathway bordered with beautiful textures of leaves weaved through the garden around rocks and stepping stones. At the centre of the garden was a giant treehouse with a rope swing. The garden was designed to recapture these moments and feelings for adults and spark excitement and love for nature in future generations.
The woodland trees and natural planting gave the garden a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The planting included plants for craft activities, edible plants such as wild strawberries and fragrant flowers to attract pollinators. CED Stone group supplied boulders, Icelandic Pebbles and Rounded Flint Stones to be used for the steam and throughout the garden to create the natural wild woodland effect.
The garden was redesigned at RHS Hampton Court and once more at RHS Wisely where it will remain for the public to enjoy.
