Plot Fresh garden FR87. Sponsor Bermuda Tourism Authority. Contractor Jack Dunckley Ltd. Theme A colourful exotic garden that represents the spectacle of a volcanic eruption.
Multiple angles and reflections, lush tropical planting and purple and red lighting create the energy and drama of a volcanic eruption. Jack has set this stylised volcano on Bermuda and is hoping to source a handsome native fan palm Sabal bermudana, which is now under threat, as the focal point of this Fresh garden. Four triangles of sheet aluminium, laser cut in sections through which the ground-level planting can be glimpsed, surround the palm. At the centre of each triangle flames dance up through limestone rocks suggesting flowing lava and these, with the architectural foliage of plants, such as Alocasia ‘ Calidora’, Ensete ventricosum and Philodendron bipinnatifidum, are reflected in two boundary walls, creating a series of illusions.
