This year at RHS Hampton Lawrence once again collaborated with Belgian sculptor William Roobrouck with, Through Your Eyes, a design which encouraged visitors to take a moment to reflect and reconnect.

The garden was inspired by the works of the Japanese landscape architect and Zen Buddhist priest, Shunmyo Masuno - a master of Zen gardens. Although a true Zen garden can only be accomplished by a disciplined practitioner of Zen Buddhism, Lawrence included key Zen principles in his design including simplicity(Kanso), and naturalness(Shizen.

All the elements of Lawrence’s garden were symbolic of different facets of life; Family, friendships, mental health, loss and age were all symbolized through the planting and materials used throughout the garden.
