Costa Cadiz

Gold Award

The ‘Costa Cadiz’ garden showcases, in a small and transferable scale, the landscape of the province of Cadiz on the southern Atlantic coast of Spain. It reminds many of use of the ‘Good Life’ that we live whilst away on holiday in warmer climates. Corten steel raised planters depict the red cliffs of this coastline, and sandstone balls represent the rocks and boulders that dot its length. Each planter includes an integrated timber bench, underplanted by sinuous streams of Armeria maritima and Thymus. The use of water in the design reflects the Moorish history of the region, and pebble mosaic stepping stones lead you through the garden. The corner patio offers cool respite from the sun beneath the shade of a tree. Featured plants are those commonly found in this region of Spain, mixed with those that flourish in the UK. The majority are drought tolerant and are particularly suited to regions of the UK with free-draining soil, or those living in exposed or coastal locations. Pancratium maritimum, Agave attenuata, Cycus revoluta and Aloe evoque the exotic feel of the region, with Pittosporum tobira, Stipa tennuisima and Euphorbia mellifera providing evergreen structure. These are mixed with plants such as Iris, Rosmarinus, Hebe, Salvias and Echinops ritro.
