Arboretum Inspirational Gardens

Arboretum Lifestyle & Garden Centre has created an exciting display garden to inspire the modern day customer. Helping visitors to create their own dreams while showing them that gardening is both stylish and fun, this showpiece allows people to see that gardening can be enjoyed in any busy lifestyle. The concept behind this design was to create a garden that is easy to care for, demands low maintenance and delivers endless enjoyment.

Designed to inspire visitors on planting schemes and solutions, the garden offers endless ideas that can be easily recreated in gardeners’ own homes. The team at Arboretum have also included a children’s maze which is a maximum height of 1 metre. This is located beside the new terraced area of Rachel’s Garden Cafe so that children can play while parents enjoy some home baking and locally sourced food. Families can also pay a visit to the fun mud hut or visit the friendly koi who live in the pond. A visit to the garden centre is a treat for the amateur or the enthusiast who will enjoy seeing the themed planting, use of colour, texture and form.
