About This Project

  • Dimensions: 1,200 m2
  • Build time: 2 weeks

In 2014 we were invited to build a display garden by Coolings, one of the UK’s leading garden centres. Working in conjunction with the Coolings staff we created a large Japanese garden to promote their plants and our services. The focal point of the display was a Tea House designed by the late Maureen Busby;  this structure  featured in her Gold Medal winning garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower show. Our display garden was viewed from three sides and presented  ever changing vistas framed through the different sections of the Tea House. We created a pond with waterfall and a large lawn with specimen Acers and evergreen shrubs. The large framed window  emulates ‘a view from the House’ and is meant to inspire people to imagine themselves looking out of their windows onto a Japanese garden.

We also launched our bespoke granite Sofa’s at the exhibition. The ones featured in this project were designed by us and there only two sets in existence. They are a unique outdoor seating solution.

The Japanese Garden Society of Great Britain held its annual exhibition as part of the event.
