Inspired by the development of a health and wellbeing garden at RHS Wisley, the garden will be a space that puts people at complete ease when looking into it or moving through. An elegant balance of exciting, decisive and restrained planting with innovative stone work, the garden will be a place to relax, drift and quietly contemplate. A garden that emphasises the positive impact of gardening and greenspaces on mental health and emotional wellbeing in an increasingly stressful urbanised world.
It will be relocated to an NHS site afterwards where it will be used for patient recovery and therapy.
