A Gallery of Wildflowers

Art may be in the eye of the beholder but as far as we are concerned the proof is very much in the pudding this month!

With spring just around the corner (we hope!) we’re delighted to share some lovely images of our Wildflower Turf Landscape Turf flourishing within the scenic grounds of The Wykeham Gallery in Hampshire.

The popular Gallery, one of the UK’s leading contemporary art galleries, exhibits paintings as well as an extensive selection of bronze sculptures, ceramics and glass by well-established British and International artists.

The Wykeham Gallery, Stockbridge

Situated on the High Street of Stockbridge, the main Gallery rooms open out into a Sculpture Garden, where space has been provided to exhibit an array of bronzes, ceramics and a collection of glass by the acclaimed glass blower Adam Aaronson.

Garden of Wykeham Gallery

With walls adorned by landscapes, the Gallery itself embarked on a major landscaping project of its own in the summer of 2017.  The Wykeham Gallery enlisted the support of Wildflower Turf Accredited Partners, Charlie’s Homes & Gardens, and the transformation of the Sculpture Garden began.

Gallery owner, Gerald Dodson, required a naturalistic solution that would add interest to the rear garden space without detracting from the sculptures themselves. The answer was our Landscape Turf, and the photos above and below illustrate just what can be achieved with this versatile landscaping option.

Landscape turf in late summer

Charlie’s Homes & Gardens Ltd, laid 10m² of Landscape Turf within the dedicated space around the sculptures in the summer of 2017. Comprised of 34 UK native wildflowers and grasses, this low-maintenance landscaping solution has proven the perfect addition to The Wykeham Gallery’s Sculpture Garden. The Gallery and Sculpture Garden are both well worth a visit, and you can find out more about The Wykeham Gallery online.
