About the Garden - Super Garden

This garden, created by Super Garden 2023 winner, Colm Carty, is designed to meet the demands of a young family. It provides a colourful and contemporary child-focused space, which is suitable for entertaining visitors of all ages.

A pergola protects the outdoor dining and lounge area from the elements and allows for use throughout the seasons, while a secluded children’s play area gives children their independence in a safe space.

The boundary planting provides privacy with pleached hornbeam and Betula utilis Jacquemontii (Himalayan Birch) multi-stem trees planted in eye-catching, lime-hued raised beds for additional height. The vibrant perennial planting scheme, which includes Agapanthus africanus ‘Albus’ (African Lily), Allium lusitanicum ‘Summer Beauty’, and a range of heucheras, miscanthus and hostas, is mixed with Buxus balls for structure and year-round interest.
