A new con­cept store is in­tro­duc­ing a world of in­door na­ture to Nor­folk. Bring­ing to­gether na­ture aquar­i­ums, aquas­cap­ing equip­ment, ter­rar­i­ums, kokedama, plants and hard­scap­ing ma­te­ri­als, Scaped Na­ture has been opened by Gill and Ray Mc­Cune in St Giles St, Norwich.

Aquas­cap­ing is the art of cre­at­ing an un­der­wa­ter land­scape or gar­den in a tank, or other con­tainer, us­ing aquatic plants and dec­o­ra­tive hard­scap­ing ma­te­ri­als. Aquas­cap­ing has be­come a spe­cial­ist, and com­pet­i­tive, art­form, with a range of styles in­clud­ing Dutch planted tanks, Ja­panese na­ture aquar­i­ums and Nano Tanks.

“We want the store to be a place where peo­ple can get in­spired by the world of aquas­cap­ing and in­door na­ture,” says Ray. The shop also has a range of ready-planted botan­i­cal art, which in­cludes ter­rar­i­ums, bon­sai, moss-art and other nat­u­ral gifts. Fol­low Scaped Na­ture on Face­book or In­sta­gram.
