Design inspiration

Carol Smith, Pershore College"The design is based on mobile planted containers with a linked watering system so the owner can maximise the limited space and vary the look of the garden. As plants fade and become past their best the containers can be switched to less prominent corners, replacing them with other planting combinations. This way the garden takes on a new lease of life with further interest and enjoyment. The garden could be changed to suit particular needs such as relaxation, outdoor dining, or entertaining. It's a flexible and yet functional 'outdoor room'."

Designer, Carol Smith
