The Old Gate Garden

The Good Gifts Garden

Also known as ‘Memories by the Sea’ this was a 1950’s seaside wildflower garden.

Featuring a picnic on the beach we used coastal wildflowers, rocks and rock pools and a boundary of weathered sea defences or groynes. The attention to detail on this was incredible, we used real sand for the beach with permission from Frinton-on-Sea in Essex and a real wave water feature that ebbed in and out with the tide. Lots of 50’s nostalgia with deckchairs and picnic set and even a fifties radio. We loved this garden and it was an honour to bring a slice of the seaside to the centre of London.
