The Labyrinth Garden

The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2007 Silver Medal winning small garden.

This garden designed by Andrew Wiggins was created at The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show to introduce the labyrinth to an audience of garden lovers and show how the labyrinth can work on several levels, as a tool for labyrinth walking, an unusual space for outdoor living and an object of beauty in its own right.

The same labyrinth design is translated into three dimensions to create the central sculpture and in a squared format forms a pair of steel trellis behind a stone cube seat.

Contrasting textures and forms of a restricted range of foliage plants create a restful courtyard atmosphere to the garden. The colour of the lustrous bark of Prunus serrula multi-stem trees is repeated in the climber, Aktinidia kolomikta and echoed in the stone cube seat and water feature
