are currently finalising the last few details before starting on site at Ness
Gardens next week. All materials have been checked and everything is more or
less ready. The debate today has been about our tall turf waves. I really think
that some designs, have a love or hate relationship with the visitors, and I
hope that this new garden within the grounds of the Ness Botanic Gardens,
Wirral, will be loved by the visitors.
garden has been named ‘Making Waves’ because this is most definitely what we
intend to do. The garden is modern and
quirky, and will have a big impact on the site, as it will be seen from many
different positions on the site. The design is based on a circular, spiral path
that guides visitors around the plot, allowing them to view the plants at
different angles throughout the journey. Colour plays a huge role in the
design, and solid blocks of colour will sweep around the spiral path. The turf waves I mentioned earlier will
emerge from the floor all over the plot, giving softened boundaries within the
design, and blocking off the view at different stages along the route.
will be using a ‘Grass Felt’ product supplied by Allturf, Knutsford. This turf is grown a mat, acting like a role
of carpet. This will help the shapes
look manicured and smooth, with no lumps and bumps!
currently working on the planting plan, which is very exciting! I like to see lots of interest, and planting
combinations you just want to take away with you. Pictures will be added for you to follow our
progress once we start on site!
can come right up to the site, and see us working. Please come and say hello!
