The Morgan garden, like Morgan, is a mixture of formal structure, but is overlaid with meadowlike planting. This garden will encourage biodiversity, a place where native ecology can thrive. Inspired by Morgan Motor Company’s attitude towards environmentally friendly Sports Car manufacture, the garden will be alive with life and movement, catching the wind and light, hopefully there will be something for everyone. This is a garden you could take home and it explores how even with limited space one could have a little piece of meadow. This garden will require relatively little maintenance and consume significantly less resources than a lawn and border.
