This garden is based upon a section of a river in a rural location in Thailand. It is designed as a
showcase for plants from Thailand as well as focusing on a way of life away from the cities.
Visitors to the garden will be able to cross the river into a lush garden and pass by an accurate
recreation of a Thai Sala.
This Thai Sala is located on the opposite side of the river with steps down to the waters edge.
This serves as a shelter from the rain and the sun and becomes somewhere to rest and
contemplate away from the house. The steps to the water allow the house owner to leave daily
offerings to passing Buddhist Monks along the river.
The water is a recreation of a river edge in Thailand; it will be circulating and will hold some
sediment in the water.

The A Matter of Urgency garden has been designed to raise awareness of overactive bladder
(OAB), a condition that affects nearly 1 in 5 people in the UK over 40. OAB is a sudden
compelling need to relieve the bladder, which is difficult to put off.
As an echo of the frustration and urgency of OAB, a long and winding hardwood path, with steps
inset with glittering glass tiles, leads slowly to a giant pink tap at the centre that appears
magically suspended in mid-air, pouring water into a square central pool with seating on three
sides. A straight hardwood path out of the garden symbolises taking action to help alleviate the
condition. The paths lead through a variety of soft and spiky textures, where vivid shades of pink
are highlighted with muted blues and silvers.
Designer Jill Foxley has exhibited in two previous Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows and has
won both a Bronze and Gold medal as well as a Peoples Choice award.

The purpose of this garden is to represent the oriental concept of nature. The theme of the garden
is Mechanism of the Mind and it is systematically constructed by the mind and the root of
unhappiness earthly desires. By comprehending the Mechanism of the Mind we are able to
quell earthly desires - this is the oriental concept of unifying with nature.
The pond represents the inner and outer mind; both sides have earthly desires and these are
represented by different growths of trees, sprouts and seeds. People can walk through from the
outer mind to the inner mind.
Louvers are built in the circle inside the pond, these represent the trees of earthly desires. Words
describing these desires are fixed upside down on the Louvers and the words can only be read
from the reflection on the pond.
The garden has five view points to make the viewer comprehend the Mechanism of the Mind
and people are guided to unify with nature:
The restricted mind world this is represented by the restricted view towards the inner circle
by the louvers.
No recognition of earthly desires the words of earthly desires can be read in the inner circle.
The separation of the mind, earthly and egocentric a 360 degree view from the centre of the
Unifying with nature the opening view towards the evanescence tree represents the evanescence of life.

Up to the end of 2009 a total of 179 British soldiers were killed in Iraq and 246 killed in
Afghanistan, of those 246 no less than 108 were killed in 2009. With so many troops dying and
wounded in the war devised by Bush, Blair, Brown and Barack this garden is a moving and
moveable memorial to them. It comprises four L-shaped walls in the formation of a crucifix.
These walls consist of a series of gabion cages in-filled with loosely arranged construction blocks
and blood red debris-filled bags.
Two olive trees are used to symbolise peace as well as being able to cope with the conditions of
the hot, dry environment. The memorial is designed for personal interaction and can be entered
through both its central and lateral axes. The narrow entrance pathways make progress measured.
A central sculptural piece adds a focal point and completes the design. The structure is designed
to be erected, or conversely, disassembled in less than a day by a small team of people, either
military or civilian.

Adelaide Community Garden Club (ACGC) was created in London over 20 years ago to reduce
suicide rates in adjoining tower blocks. 15% of current plot holders originate from Bangladesh
and they intensively cultivate unusual vegetables on their plots which are usually visually striking
and distinctive. These are grown in raised beds as the Community Garden is sited on an old
tarmac car park.
The garden is an Adelaide Community Garden Club Bangladeshi allotment in the form of a
formal potager. It shows vegetables and horticulture strange to English eyes. An herb parterre,
within an outdoor room, is screened by strange beans and giant rambling gourds.
The garden ironically juxtaposes sustainable Bangladeshi subsistence horticulture with wasteful
unproductive Western formal landscaping. Although the garden will be based on Bangladeshi
horticulture, all the Bangladeshi plants grow happily in the United Kingdom at the ACGC garden.
The garden is a microcosm of Louis XIVs Potager du Roi the origin of scientific horticulture
and is a perfect quadrille. Laugiers iconic Hut (mans first house) is replicated in living willow
in one quarter creating a picturesque view. Laugier called for a rethink of degenerate, wasteful
The design adopts Laugiers principles of garden ornament. Particularly he advocates subjecting
Versailles outdoor rooms to foreign (eastern) influence. Thus, ironically, the folly of formal
landscape style is subjected to Bangladeshi subsistence horticulture where everything is edible
and recycled. Laugiers Hut becomes a dougie house. Exotic vegetables grow on a matrix of
junk and urban detritus.
The garden is entirely prefabricated using 900mm square industrial pallets and waste - costing

This contemporary garden is a vision of strength and lightness at the same time, offering
ecological and elegant space for entertaining and relaxation.
The centrepiece of the garden is a modern gazebo, constructed with absolutely new sustainable
technology called D-shape, which allows creating recycled artificial stone indistinguishable from
the real stone with the bonus of it being 100% environmentally friendly. High and soft clumps of
grasses and neutral coloured perennials surround and complement the structure.
The garden celebrates the reunion of millions of grains of rock sand, which after being separated
for a long time finally end, gathering together as they used to when they were forming the
original natural stone.
Last year the designers presented a garden at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and were
was awarded an RHS Gold Medal and B
