Beginning May 18, visitors to Jacksons Fencing in Kent in the U.K. can view seven award-winning gardens at Jacksons 4th Annual Show Gardens Opening. Displays include the Seaside garden, winner of the first Jacksons Fencing garden design competition and designed by Joanne Winn of Joanne Winn Garden Design.
The Seaside garden has undergone a slight redesign and will be called the Sanctuary garden for this display. The garden features a large deck and a retreat made with slatted material that allows light into the building. As the competition website describes the plantings, "the garden is softly swathed with layers of tall, lacy flower heads, aloft the shimmering drifts of grasses. Box cubes add structure to the airy planting, emphasizing the form of the building and accentuating the geometry of the garden. The shade is lightened by the pastel and white planting beneath the delicate canopy of a Birch tree."
Other gardens on display include a preview of the new Whitefriars Show Garden by Lisa Feurtado, which will be installed in Canterbury city center in June, and the Float garden, previously designed by Royal Horticultural Society medal winner Heather Appleton with a new planting scheme by competition winner David Magner.
Nemetschek Vectorworks was proud to be involved in the competition as a sponsor. And, Vectorworks users might recognize some of the Jacksons products from the Jacksons Fencing content library available as part of their Vectorworks Service Select membership.
