Perspective view  of garden

Garden description:


 The purpose of this garden is to provide a serene contemplative space to be experienced and enjoyed by oneself or in the company of small groups - with friends,as a retreat or meeting  space. As you journey through the garden each area defined by the pergola structure is intended to provoke and elicit different emotional and sensory responses.This garden is a contemporary interpretation on the age old theme of the garden as sanctuary, enclosed by its structures and as such I see this garden being used as a meditative space for busy lives. Thematically I want the garden to communicate ones journey through life with all its complexity, its obstacles and different stages
