"Delve Deeper" Garden Design

     I finally sat down to  delve deeper  into this garden design I created for a popular Irish TV show called Super Garden  last summer. However, it's impossible to do so without mentioning that I'm writing with a heavy heart (I'll explain at the very end).  Since the show is competitive, I had to wait 9 months for the new season to air and the winner to be announced before I could talk about this particular project so as not to breach the contract (or ruin the element of surprise, of course).      After meeting with the homeowners - a widower and his two teenage sons - I had a vague brief: a low maintenance garden with Japanese/zen elements and a space to commemorate his late wife. Even though there were many show-related rules I had to follow, and plenty of obstacles along the way, I'm just going to mention those I believe were crucial to the execution of this design, and what I would do differently if it weren't for the short time span I had to turn my vision in
