This year, designer Sadie May Stowell took on three ‘Great Gardens Of The USA’ gardens for RHS Hampton Court, each with a completely different style and design.
This garden is designed to capture the natural beauty of the landscape and gardens of Oregon and takes inspiration from its mountainous landscape, “Rose Test” garden and Japanese-style gardens.
The backdrop of the Oregon Garden consists of rocky outcrops representing mountains, made up of Gabbro Boulders and Weathered Limestone Rockery. Conifer trees will be planted into these to give a feeling of height and scale.
Pathways will be constructed from crushed Black Basalt Aggregate, reflecting similar colours to those of the natural stone found in the region. The pathway leads to a pool of water, changing the colour of the gravel to a dramatic dark grey. The planting colour palette consists of deep reds, cream and pinks.
