A magical woodland forest garden, with native plants, ornamentals and edibles, filled with life and colour. And lots of paths and somewhere to sit down.

“The territory is the map” (with apologies to Alfred Korzybski)
In contrast to my normal practise, the garden has been designed in situ, using locally sourced bamboo and cotton twine to mark out paths, and larger canes to mark out trees. To bastardise Alfred Korzybski’s quote, the territory is the map, so I won’t be creating a CAD plan here.
