Back in April we were contacted by Raunds town council and asked if we would be interested in designing a memorial garden for locally born Ada Salter. Ada later on in her career became the first female mayor of London. Ada was passionate about creating beautiful space within an urban area. With this in mind and the very challenging site confirmed we came up with a design that complements and amplifies the surrounding landscape.
We decided to use timber sleepers installed vertically to retain the existing slope. We chose to use this material and install it this way to Allow the boundaries of the garden to flow and blend in with the existing contours of the landscape and we believe this has worked extremely well.
