Garden of Rest, rural

The extension to the Salcombe Regis Parish Church graveyard gave the opportunity for a garden of remembrance to be created in a highly sensitive landscape, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Devon coastal path.

The Parish Council was keen to provide a restful, contemplative space where people could meet and gather for mourning the loss of loved ones, whilst at the same time giving them an uplighting and inspirational surrounding with stunning views to the sea.

The proposals included innovative earth retaining tecnology, locally distinctive planted ‘green Devon banks’ and rippled grass felt terraces acting as land art for seating and gathering which gave the space a focus and intensity.

Landscape Budget: circa £.25 million
