An overview of the garden showing the seating areas, the new ornamental planting and enclosed lawn.

The Garden of Creation, .............. Burley in Wharfedale

Little School, Pre-school nursery at the Methodist Church, wanted to improve their outside environment for learning and provide stimulating play spaces. Helen developed the western side of the church grounds to provide a generous lawn, seating and planting areas.

The garden has been named the Garden of Creation, because of the integral series of mosaic panels, which tell the bible story of the Creation. The mosaics are set into a minor path, which winds its way through ornamental planting connecting the seating areas.

A mural of Noah’s ark was proposed for the boundary wall to provide an original play feature.
