Designed by Matthew Childs, the garden is an ‘immersive metaphor for our future environment’. The garden has been designed to encourage visitors to install a smart meter and be more aware of the energy we use and our carbon footprint. Sponsored by The Campaign For A Smarter Britain, the garden has many different elements within it to symbolise our use of energy and its effect on our planet with a strong message about the relationship between carbon emissions and our natural world. With our company trying our best to slowly improve our own carbon footprint and do better for the environment, we are extremely happy to have worked with Matthew Childs on this garden.
