The ‘Great Gardens of the USA: The Charleston Garden’ took inspiration from the “hidden gardens” of Charleston. These ‘secret’ gardens were influenced by American landscape architect Loutrel Briggs who, using native plants, developed flourishing, verdant gardens which were structured in such a way to lead visitors to a focal point, such as a water fountain or sculpture.

Sadie incorporated characteristic elements to her design including wrought iron gates, to give visitors the feeling that they are getting a glimpse into these renown hidden gardens.
