Graham A.Pavey Garden and Landscape Design
Special Projest - Tranquility Garden (Drought Resistant)
The entrance to Bedford Hospital South wing hospital was always dominated by this amoaebic shaped roundabout heavily
shaded by mature lime trees.
Used as a short cut to the car park it was often muddy with no endearing qualities.
The new garden celebrates the River Great Ouse which is the beating heart of the town.
With plants selected to simulate those along the bank and around the Priory marina it is made up of a a sweeping dry bed of shingle with sculptures of white swans, by Susannah Oliver, lifting off from the reeds.
It needs very little maintenance and no watering, even in the worst drought.
This has been achieved by insulating the soil with a geo-textile material and selecting plants which are used to growing in dry conditions
Thank you so much for designing such a lovely patio garden for us to enjoy and for recommending D J Landscapes to us.
The work that Jason and his team have done is absolutely superb and we are extremely happy with everything.
