Constructing a conceptual garden at Hampton Court Flower Show 2016, a depiction of time and space in garden form! We intend to create a 4.3 metre turf pyramid capped with a steel apex and housing holes that run through the core of the structure. These holes hint at an alternative reality as you look through. The pyramid is set within a black pond and the pond is encircled by the fiery planting and translucent coloured glass. These depict a dying star collapsing to form a black hole.
£20,000 to build a garden?
On the scale that we are building our material costs are the biggest outlay. The planting and the glass mulch require over half the budget. This is our primary concern. We have ways in which we can scale back but this will compromise the overall look and we are reticent to do this.
We would very much like to be able to pay those that have committed themselves to working on the garden. Last year it was John and myself and a few days of others time. This year we are going to need more than two people.
we have set up a facebook page that blogs our progress, the history and our thinking behind the garden.
Last year there was a lot of interest from people wanting the garden but finally we decided to give the bare bones of the design away to a community project in Bexhill. We spent six months working with them to transform a dumping ground into their garden of dreams.
This year there is a possibility that the garden will be bought. But based on last years experience we are not holding our breath.
