Lynn Hill and CED Stone Group team up for The Garden Retreat: A place for living

Lynn Hill Garden Design teams up with CED Stone Group to create an oasis of calm and tranquillity at Gardening Scotland 2018

Imagine if you will at the end of a long day at the office, pouring yourself a refreshing cool drink and escaping the world as you ease yourself into the tranquil surroundings of your garden retreat.

Sink into a world of calm amongst the lush green of the planting as the wind makes its music through the leaves of the trees above. This is the world of The Garden Retreat: A place for living. The show garden being especially created for this years’ Gardening Scotland event, designed by Lynn Hill Garden Design and created by CED Stone Group.

This is a garden where inside and outside meet, it’s an extension of your home… a place for living.

But let’s face it, for those of us blessed to live in Scotland, we know all too well how it likes to rain. This is where including a garden room comes into its own, all the benefits of an outdoor space with the comfort and security of protective walls and a roof. And how beautifully these are decorated, featuring the botanical artwork of Eleanor Christopher of Rosslyn Chapel Art which brings their own distinctive quality to the space.

We are hearing more and more about how gardens are good for us and science is discovering that even just the simple act of being in a garden increases well being, allowing us to become calmer, healthier and happier. This garden is a real visual treat, an oasis of green. The soft hues of the silver grey granite underfoot stands’ out like a gem against the tactile majesty of the Caithness stone: A real Scottish native. Modern products such as the slate Tier cladding compliment the style and show us how a feature of real stone can be included in a simple, easy to create way to wonderful effect.

Situated just as you enter the show, The Garden Retreat: A place for living extends its warm welcome as you arrive at Gardening Scotland this coming June, and looks forward to revealing to you its’ recipe for calm and tranquillity.
