The New Water Garden

When the old tennis court slipped into disuse, it provided an opportunity to inject a new contemporary garden design into Kiftsgate. This took the form of a new Water Garden, The sculptor Simon Allison contributed to the design with a creation that provided height and movement by producing twenty four stainless steel stems topped with gilded bronze leaves moulded from a philodendron. They sway gently in the wind and the sound of the water dripping from the leaves provides a cooling influence on a hot afternoon.
