Chelsea Flower Show 2012
Royal Bank of Canada Blue Water Garden
This garden, sponsored by the Royal Bank of Canada, highlighted the preciousness of water as a valuable resource. The form of the garden was based on the Paradise Garden concept, where water was celebrated in a dry and arid climate, and rich green enclosed gardens were a cool oasis in the parched surrounding landscape.
To heighten the association with aridity, the focus of the garden was a recreated Trulli building, with a stacked drystone roof.
