‘Every garden, no matter how little, can be developed into a property,’ says John Wyer of Bowles & & Wyer, who constructed the medal-winning Florence Nightingale Garden for Chelsea 2021. ‘In a smaller sized space, every millimetre counts. The garden needs to be useful in regards to how you want to utilize it, but also think of how it will look from surrounding windows as well as from within the garden itself.’
He likewise advises against trying to squeeze in too many concepts. Rather, take strong decisions using a ‘less is more’ method. ‘Select a color pattern and adhere to it and you’ll naturally have a more cohesive and impactful garden design,’ he says.
Here, little trees, a simple color scheme and soft textured planting in The Florence Nightingale Garden, Chelsea 2021, developed by Bowles & & Wyer take center stage.
