The Morgan Stanley Garden for the NSPCC

Designed by Chris Beardshaw

Best Show Garden and Gold medal winner

Morgan Stanley returns for their fourth year with Chris Beardshaw to create ‘The Morgan Stanley Garden for the NSPCC’. As with previous collaborations, the design reflects Morgan Stanley's long-term commitment to the wellbeing of children, with this year's design aiming to raise awareness of the work of the NSPCC, the Firm's current charity partner.
The design is intended to act as a metaphor for the emotional transformation that takes place in a child as they experience the positive impact of the NSPCC's work, in their fight for every childhood. At the start of the garden the
 direction of the path is unclear 
as it moves through the richly
 planted woodland.
There is a bespoke cedar 
wood pavilion, enclosed at the 
rear by a calm and reflective 
pool. Looking out from the
 pavilion the garden provides a safe, secure and rich sensory environment.
Planting includes large specimen trees, woodland and acid loving woodland specimens with subtle foliage textures, greens and splashes of velvety blues, pinks and purples.
