The roof garden will showcase the new Splash Lounge oak furniture collection by Gaze Burvill and also accommodate a Sub Zero & Wolf kitchen with bespoke Gaze Burvill oak cabinetry.
When it came to selecting trees for the garden the obvious choice was oak, the starting point for all Gaze Burvill furniture. The main areas of planting include a three part living wall. Two sections will form an ornamental green wall planted with two types of native fern, Polypodium vulgare and Athyrium niponicum var. Pictum. The third plant species in the wall will be a trailing ivy, Hedera helix 'Green Ripple', with strong green leaves, cream veins and wavy margins, turning purple in winter.
The other section of the living wall has been reserved for edibles and weather permitting, visitors should be able to see strawberries, dill, chervil, parsley, coriander, sage, chilli peppers, red and green basil, mint, bronze fennel, Rosemary and tumbling tomatoes.
The border that divides the roof garden section from the main garden will have a spine of grasses punctuated with spiky formed flowers such as Digitalis mertonensis and Deschampsia Cespitosa.
Other flowering plants include; Gaura lindheimeri ‘Crimson Butterflies’ and Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’.
Underneath the Broadwalk Tree Seat showing the different stages of construction are some great ground cover plants such as Asarum canadense and Soleirolia soleirolii.
