Using our in-house landscaping designer, Studio Four was commissioned by Solent NHS Trust to develop two charity-funded gardens for staff at St Mary’s Hospital in Portsmouth and the Western Community Hospital in Southampton.


With both gardens set within hospital grounds, it was important for the design of each to create a space where staff can escape, relax and enjoy away from the hustle and bustle of hospital life. It was also important for the designs to include for both privacy with secluded areas as well as open areas for people to sit and enjoy with colleagues. With wheelchair accessibility throughout, a rich colour palette and highly scented plants to stimulate the senses, these gardens should serve the hospitals well in the coming years and  bring a little nature to both campuses.
