CED Stone Inspiring Beautiful Landscapes

The Viking Cruises Nordic Lifestyle Garden

A celebration of the Nordic lifestyle, the garden will portray a typical Scandinavian garden, complete with a sauna and plunge pool which are traditionally enjoyed by everyone in the family. Meadow grass will be arranged around the sauna and Nordic trees such as silver birch and pines form the woodland edge. Wildflowers and ferns will be planted around the garden to reinforce the natural Nordic feel with many culinary or medicinal plants included.

A woodland path will lead through the space to a clearing with a stone-paved seating area and a sauna hut with a sedum roof. Stone boulders will then lead to a wooden-framed plunge pool edged with cobbles and boulders. With Stephen liaising with the CED Stone Landscape teams, we were delighted to donate our Mixed Glacial Boulders, Gabbro Boulders and Porphyry Plattens in various sizes to the garden, along with our Highland Cobbles.
