My Garden is called“Rirakkusu” in Japanese meaning Relaxed which I try and embody with this design. Designing a landscape where the end user can escape the hustle and bustle of life and unwind and relax in their garden. Using elements of Japanese landscaping without the maintenance of a traditional Japanese design. Using little to no hard lines and incorporating curves and flowing eye lines. The plants I have incorporated into the garden are a mix of deciduous and evergreen species, with colourful and interesting foliage. As the garden transforms over the year it develops and takes on various looks and you can always see something new and different in this garden, with the new leaves on the maples or the striking new flowers coming through in autumn.
