Sanctum Garden Studio – QuadPod Studio
Daniel loves playing the drums and the Love Your Garden team wanted to give him a space within the garden that would be his very own music studio and chill out zone. The fantastic company Sanctum Garden Studios stepped up and provided their newest garden building.
With the modern design of the garden the QuadPod fits perfectly into the space and adds a beautiful contemporary feature within the landscape. The team used the cedar laths from the building as inspiration for more elements within the garden, such as the fencing, BBQ area and the patio space. This way the garden has a feeling of cohesion and it gave Daniel a clear destination for when he was in the garden.
The QuadPod comes in a range of sizes (and you can ask for more extras to be added if you wish. The smallest building Sanctum Garden Studios provides is the Quad Pod Micro at 2.4m x 1.8m). The Quad Pod is fully insulated, and comes with power outlets and lighting. Design and installation is all included in the price as well as the foundation. This building would add a wow factor to any garden.

Van Den Berk – Swing Trees
As Daniel has been tragically been struck down with Alzheimer, he needs to have clear visual pathways to help him navigate within the spaces he occupies. Within this garden the team wanted to create a small avenue of trees to help guide Daniel through the garden. But we didn’t want to use any old trees for this.
The Swing tree which is only grown by Van Den Berk Nurseries was the only choice for this garden. This one of a kind roof form trees with it striking S-curve gave this modern design beautiful height and created the avenue to draw the eye up the garden, and gave Daniel a simple path for him to recognize.
These trees were a big challenge for Alan and the team to get into place, but they really do make the garden feel and look amazing.
Van Den Berk grow these types of trees either in Platanus x hispanica or Carpinus betulus and they have a massive range of other trees. Whatever location or project you have, they can find the right tree for you.

Foras – Serene bowl Water Feature
The sound of water is always a great feature to have in a garden and we wanted to give the Bradbury family something special to enjoy.
The Serene bowl which was kindly donated by Foras is made out of Natural Rainbow sandstone so each one is the only one in the world. It is aptly named the Infinity Serene because of the large surface area of the water.
It is shallow enough to see all the exquisite natural graining enhanced by the water but deep enough to create the effect of a self-contained pond.
You can create different movements with the water by adjusting the pump. The birds love this bowl for a bath as the lip around the side gives them stability even with the water following. Just sitting near this water feature will give the family a feeling of peace and calming elements, as nature should.
You can add lighting as an option and included in the kit is the reservoir pump all the components and 100 KG of tumbled cobbles of your choice of Colour.
