MODERN GEORGIAN GARDEN
Cambridge cottage, Kew Gardens
A modern interpretation of Georgian landscapes, this design transforms the grounds of Cambridge Cottage, a popular events venue at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
The design emphasises and plays with two major themes of Georgian landscape design - views and (in)formality - interpreted with a contemporary eye.
The design includes an avenue of Liquidambar styraciflua, underplanted with Hakonechloa macra. Other areas feature structural planting of multi-stem trees and beech hedging, alongside softer ornamental grasses and perennials.
The hard landscaping features aged copper water tanks, sawn limestone plank paving, and bespoke sawn limestone seating.
