The Royal Bank of Canada Garden starts from a very simple truism. Our planet needs water, and water equals life. The garden is divided into three main parts: a zero irrigation ‘dry garden’, a central water harvesting/storage zone and an edible garden with a raised seating/dining platform.
The garden celebrates the curve as a thing of beauty: voluptuous, sensual and cosseting. It is a space designed to be easy to live with, one that can be a little ragged around the edges without detracting from its beauty, and a garden that provides edible plants alongside ornamental plants in a fun way that is easy to manage.
