Description
This garden reflects the ethos of Samaritans, a charity where an individual is given space and time to be listened to, without judgement, in order that they can start to find a way through even the most difficult feelings. Themes of face-to-face communication, shelter, support, an oasis of calm and ease of accessibility are all present.

There are three distinct areas in the garden. A slate-paved section represents hectic and sometimes difficult pathways and features plants with stronger structure, texture and depth of colour. White stepping stones lead to a central curved steel archway with two seats that face each other over reflective pools of water.

The rear of the garden has a calm, restful atmosphere created by lush un-mown grass underfoot, a grove of small trees and a lighter planting palette. A water wall mirrors the curves of the central arch and gives the meditative sound of slowly running water.
All materials and plants have been considered from an ethical and sustainable standpoint.
