Our 2004 MIFGS Show Garden, 'Urban Tranquillity', is a contemporary, lush and tranquil space catering for relaxing outdoor lifestyle. A beautiful garden which we were awarded a very pleasing silver medal.
The design is a balance of several raised areas set amongst a lush garden, enhanced by finished surfaces of stone, glass and timber. The focal point both day and night is a stacked glass spherecal water feature designed and made by Prue Metcalfe. Another subtle feature Prue designed is the mirror face below the paved platform, designed to reflect the lawn abutting it making the paving appear as if floating.
Also included is a culinary garden, a popular and almost mandatory request in gardens we design.
The philosophy of the design behind 'Urban Tranquillity' is to represent a relaxing, attractive garden, focusing on balance betwen design and plants, making i tsuitable for small spaces and still be functional.
