We are building a garden at Chelsea Flower Show this year. The garden of mindful living is designed by Paul Martin and sponsored by Vesta Wealth. It is a contemporary modern garden owned by a busy city client that has been inspired by the love of far eastern travel, yoga and a requirement for calm space in which to relax after a busy day at work.
The design incorporates clean lines and smart details such as Corten walls, Subtle grey – splashed limestone, and large sliding shutters that open to reveal the sparkling city views at night.
Large multi-stemmed trees provide dappled shade over a planting palette of soft green and yellow primulas, which dance beside secret rills of water that escape through blocks of limestone. The planting creates a gentle calm and relaxing space to unwind and restore one’s life balance.
