Silver medal
The Raku Garden

Design inspiration

Rachel Ewer"This is a garden for pure enjoyment; ra: ku in Japanese literally means enjoyment. Garden visitors can relax by the water, delight in a game of boules or simply rest and recuperate whilst watching shadow play from the fish panels. I hope people will immerse themselves in the plants and surroundings and savour the time. The planting is designed to be drought-tolerant and uses maritime plants."

Designer, Rachel Ewer
