The Memorial Gardens which form the core of the cemetery were incomplete. FJLA was engaged to design a garden which would complete and complement the other “courts” whilst being contemporary in its detailing.
The result was a hedged garden with seasonal theme, ornamental paving with botanical etching [Designed by Florence Jaquet who is also a botanical artist], reticulated and self-sustainable fountains interrupted by a central and shady arbour.
The design introduced artwork from emerging Victorian sculptors and drought resistant planting not previously seen in the park. All this was achieved through comprehensive consultation with the Trust and ground staff.
The memorial garden provides up to 6 different type of ash interments, catering for individuals, couples and families at different levels of affordability.
Our office provided services from concept design through to contract administration. The project was delivered on time and on budget.
