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 bijou 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 the 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.
Richard Miers’ Nefelibata: Cloud Walker Garden Installation in association with Quintessentially Travel
‘I was inspired by the global aspect of Quintessentially Travel and thinking laterally, came up with the concept for the installation where rather than just looking at a garden feature, the visitor interacts and travels through the different parts of the world depicted in my imagination as giant ‘globes’ of live flowers. As a garden designer I may be straying from my expertise into the world of art and floristry, but sometimes it good to blur the boundaries of life in pursuit of different experiences…’ Richard Miers, Feature Designer
‘With every tailor-made journey we craft, our aim is to push the boundaries of your imagination, offering new and different experiences that will make a world of difference to the way you travel. Richard has so naturally captured this freedom in his design, transporting visitors from the ordinary to the extra-ordinary and creating a space where you can discover a new sense of perspective, both within the spheres of gardening and travel.’ Quintessentially Travel, Feature Sponsor
