FLOURISHING FUTURE GARDEN

Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival 2019

SOLUTION

Central to the garden is a rainfall pavilion showing the essential cycle of water that we all rely on to live and grow. A blooming flower meadow is a miniature version of sprawling urban wetlands and a drought tolerant planting section shows how planting selection can be key in managing water resources. The garden also demonstrates water management for food production and how we can reduce the pressures on our infrastructure and prevent flooding in our homes and community spaces.
