The Light Catcher garden showed how natural daylight can be harnessed to create drama and ambience by using materials chosen for their reflective, diffusive and fluctuating qualities to create a contemplative and soothing space. The cocoon-like structure featured a floating central collar which funnelled sunlight to collect and reflect in a pool of water.
Plants included a collection of shimmering grasses like Agrostis nebulosa, Briza media and Deschampsia cespitosa mixed with structural perennials like Echinops and Salvia. Colours focused on purple and blue hues with sprays of white to create a luminosity that alters with the fluctuations of natural light.
The Light Catcher was a conceptual garden created for the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. Its award was reflective of great team work and commitment from a wonderful group of colleagues, friends and family. Thank you [you know who you all are x].
