The John Deere Garden: Celebrating 100 Years of Tractors project

The garden features a striking circular sculpture of 100 golden tractors and the planting mixes meadow and monoculture planting styles. A charred oak backdrop and circular seating suggest farm buildings dotted across the pastoral landscape. The garden reflects the atmosphere of walking through the countryside, where nature looks on as tractors cultivate the fields.

The planting depicts the landscape’s natural beauty through a combination of native and non-native flowering grasses and wildflowers. Around 2000 individual plants include Calamagrostis Karl Foerster planted en masse to mimic fields of crops, while Papaver cambricum and ferns portray John Deere’s green and yellow corporate colours.
