The Inspiration

As students, we wanted to create a relaxing, calming space where we could engage in our studies. To enhance the peaceful ambiance, in this space we introduced a green hue to the newly painted wall and changed the path to a curved shape interplanted with grasses to soften the look.

We have introduced yellow and orange flowering plants to the sunny parts of the garden and purple and blue flowering plants to the shady areas. The patio area has been changed to allow a comfortable space that is conducive to studying and contemplation.

The new water feature is modern and has sleek, simple lines to enhance the peacefulness of our garden.
