Plot Ar­ti­san gar­den AR564. Spon­sor Com­mon­wealth War Graves Com­mis­sion. Con­trac­tor Arun Land­scapes Ltd. Theme A gar­den of re­mem­brance that marks 100 years of Com­mon­wealth War Graves.

Fit­tingly for the Ar­ti­san cat­e­gory, the con­struc­tion of this 8m x 6m me­mo­rial gar­den, which marks the cen­te­nary of the foun­da­tion of the Com­mon­wealth War Graves Com­mis­sion, em­ploys the skills of CWGC crafts­men from around the world. The de­signer in­cor­po­rates ma­te­ri­als and mo­tifs from the graves to shape a series of cir­cles and curves in brick, me­tal and Port­land stone. The cen­tral arch, clad in a me­mo­rial wreath, frames a flight of stone steps that lead on to a plat­form. Here the vis­i­tor can sit on a cir­cu­lar bench, screened from the out­side world by the canopies of Acer pal­ma­tum. Horn­beam hedg­ing en­closes the plot, while a sea of al­li­ums above tex­tured fo­liage plants, mul­ti­plied in re­flec­tive mir­rors, sug­gest the fallen sol­diers.
