inspiration for your garden at home

beautiful feature gardens

Inspiration will also abound with beautiful feature gardens jam-packed with ideas for you to steal for your own gardens at home. With a little design know-how even the smallest back lawn, the most bijot of patios or the tiniest of balconies can become a wonderful place in which to spend time this summer. Trick the eye with a colour scheme or clever use of lighting, make a feature of foliage, or simply adorning the smallest of spaces with right plants and accessories can all set the tone for your ideal outdoor atmosphere. Whether you have a roof terrace, an itty-bitty balcony or a large green patch get inspired by these feature gardens and design ideas which are perfect for city and country gardens alike.

2016 FEATURE GARDENS

CLIFTON NURSERIES & OMOROVICZA SPA GARDEN

Matthew Wilson designed the relaxing sanctuary feature for visitors to find peace away from the busy world with plants that will reflect the fragrances and ingredients found in the Omorovicza products elements of which include jasmine, pomegranate and olive trees.

BEACH RETREAT GARDEN

Nature Redesigned team, Francesca Murrell and Emma Page, who together designed the RHS Chelsea gold medal winning DialAFlight Potter’s Garden in 2014, bought a touch of the seaside to the event with their quirky Beach Retreat Garden. 

Incorporating billowing waves of silvery-white, blues and pinks, the planting has all been selected for its suitability to exposed, dry coastal areas, but all of which would be equally at home in London roof gardens due to its tolerance of wind and dry conditions. 

The girls showcased a seaside yoga retreat with a living roof, demonstrating how even the smallest garden structure can improve biodiversity and increase wildlife habitat. This garden bought a  bit of “joie de vivre” and a breath of fresh holiday air to London last year.
