Project Description

The brief

Secure widespread publicity for the first museum exhibition devoted to the work of a living garden designer.

“Making gardens for other people, as I have done for 25 years, has changed my approach to the work. Nowadays I see it as much more about tending and managing a patch of vegetation, more about creating a place that is rooted in its landscape context, than it is about growing a rare kniphofia or the latest, smartest dahlia.”

Tom Stuart-Smith writing in the Financial Times, 21 May 2011
