It's hip to be square.
Inspired by the modern spaces of the Cadogan Estate, Robert Myers has designed 'A Cadogan Garden', a contemporary garden which will incorporate panels of clipped myrtle or box to form a foil and contrast to the planting behind.
Tom Stuart-Smith has designed 'The Laurent-Perrier Garden', which is a garden of elegant understatement based on juxtaposing opposites. The garden features a grove of 30 year old hornbeams which extend over the garden and are pruned so that the foliage forms a number of rounded clouds that seem to float in mid-air.
'The Reflective Garden' designed by Clare Agnew and sponsored by Ruffer LLP, is geometric in plan and structure, but inspired by nature. Tall structural trees and flowering plants are in huge contrast to cool still reflective pools and horizontal groundcover. The planting is leafy and textural, with bold use of Calamagrostris and Buxus cubes. www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profiles0503/topiary_training.asp
