Briony Doubleday from Bee’s Gardens show garden, 'The Penumbra’ is designed for a shady, sheltered, urban garden, to show that abundant and lush planting can thrive in a small garden overshadowed by neighbouring buildings…this garden has been designed as a space for relatives of stroke survivors to step out of the clinical area and reflect and build their resilience to provide strength and support to their loved one.

Briony chose to use our SlateWood paving in the garden. It was the golden, rusty-coloured hues shot through the slate that appealed the most to her. She was still keen to have a natural finish at the edges. Briony was specifically looking for planks with straighter edges and distinctive rusty streaks, which would match with the rusted piping and corten water trough features in the garden. Our Golden Flint Gravel to fill in around the planks.
