    Over The Wall

  • In 2022 we created a garden at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Festival for Over The Wall children’s Charity Supported by Takeda

The circular garden invited visitors to literally step over the wall a metaphor for the barriers presented by illness. A winding path led towards a sunrise opening symbolising new possibilities. On the way they passed vivid colourful planting which referenced the colours of the charity’s brilliance beads (awarded to children who attend OTW camps). Elements of Japanese garden aesthetic represented the heritage of Takeda
