Water Feature, Cambridge University Botanic Garden
Category: Commercial Projects
We were delighted to be involved with the water garden at Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
“Supporting leading scientific research and welcoming 300,000 visitors a year Cambridge University Botanic Garden is one of the largest university -owned botanic gardens in the world.
The gardens living plant collection of over 8,000 is spread across 40 acres of landscaped gardens. The collection, which includes iconic, threatened and endangered trees and plants, supports university research which focus on meeting many of the world’s greatest future challenges (such as food security, climate change and medicine). The garden also inspires schools, the local community and visitors from around the world about the importance of plants and plant science, horticulture and the joy of gardening.” -Cambridge university.
The installation involved installing three large pre-formed tubs, in three tiers, forming part of a large waterfall. The filtration and plumbing system were hidden by the water feature stone. With dry stone walling and selective planting, we managed to create a large botanic feature fitting elegantly within the garden.
