Best Elements Garden

Designed by Joan Mulvenna & Andrew Lee

Taking its inspiration from wind blowing through barley fields, this garden makes it easy for all those who experience it to visualise the wind.

The central focus of the garden is a wind cloud sculpture which was designed by Andrew Lee. The sculpture consists of 1,437 reflective tell-tales all of which capture every subtle detail of the wind's movement.

There is a limited array of plants that feature in this garden and each of these plants manages to capture a different aspect of the wind's movement perfectly.
