EverEdge at Hampton Court
EverEdge congratulate Matthew Childs on his Gold Award & winning Best Conceptual Garden.
The Design theme: The Garden is called 'Light at the end of the tunnel' and the theme is hope. The journey through the garden starts with a shaded, confined tunnel like space representing a period of trauma. However, there is clearly a path ahead and as the visitor walks down this path they are rewarded with more space, light and a growing sense of hope. Inspiration for the garden:On 7th July 2005 I was badly injured in the bombing at Edgware road station. When I was carried out of the underground from darkness into light I felt a great sense of hope and this continued to grow with the support I received throughout my recovery. The bombings placed a new perspective on life for me and I felt I owed it to those people who did not survive the attacks to make the most of the chance I had been given. My recovery prompted me to fulfil my dream of becoming a garden designer.
