This garden is a contemporary, abstract, version of a coastal garden using water, coastal plants, timber and rock. The design thought behind it is the journey, a steady climb up through the landscape from a barren shore to a lush refuge representing a cancer survivor's journey through their illness phases. The route is not direct, and involves changes in direction, and highs and lows -- much like the cancer survivor's experience. I found that to be a rather nice thought. Pretty and poetic.
