The design of the landscape in this show garden is a figure of eight, forming the symbol of infinity. The two interlocking circles symbolise 'continuity and that progress is everlasting. Each new cancer research breakthrough inspires the next.'
A sinuous water feature laid with Grey Paddlestones connects the two halves of the garden, the source of the water and destination of it is hidden from view as to create an infinite feature. A timber walkway appears to float above the garden and colourful scented planting leading to a seating area sunk into the ground. For the pathways and sunken areas CED Stone supplied CEDEC Silver footpath gravel and White Limestone Aggregate.
The garden represents our legacy supporters and our researchers, who together will help to beat cancer for future generations.
