A classic English garden for New York city

Landscape architects Isabel and Julian Bannerman are flying from height to height.Recently awarded a Royal Warrant by Prince Charles for their ongoing work at Highgrove, they have won another illustrious prize the contract for the British Memorial Garden in New York.
The garden is a gift from the British community in New York to the people of New York City. The site in Hanover Square, Manhatten, is to be a memorial garden for 9/11, as well as a park for the thousands who work in the area.

The design brief specifies that it should be a classic British garden. The Bannermans have created a sinuous shape deliberately reminiscent of the British Isles. It is to be defined by massive clipped yews to create a feeling of timelessness, to recall English churchyards and haunts of ancient peace. More topiary comes in the form of clipped box infilling the benches. Cast iron railings, a rill and York paving add to the picture. There will be a profusion of country garden flowers, including some grown from seed gathered at Hampton Court and presented to the City by Princess Anne.
Construction starts in July.
