Hanging garden 'seat'

A hanging garden seat, creating a beautiful ‘nest’ with cushions for the whole family to enjoy.

“…it's the best money we have spent in a long time!”

It’s all about getting the most perfect location in the garden - we install a structural line high in the tree-canopy between two trees, the height will depend upon the architecture of the trees and their branches. It can be any two trees, what we will be looking at is the line between the two trees - distance between trees is arbitrary, so long as there is good space for the seat or ‘Nest’, which can sit anywhere along that line.

For this project the client had purchased a hanging garden seat at a garden show, but rather than also purchasing an ‘A’ frame to suspend the seat and therefore have a ground based structure in the garden, they were keen to explore more exciting opportunities to achieve a ‘floating’ and ‘suspended’ experience above a wilderness meadow underneath the canopy of the trees.

What we achieved was magical, bringing an otherwise ‘wild’ and not used part of the garden into a real “wow-factor” feature, to be enjoyed by both parents and loved by the kids as a great place for reading homework.

Key benefits for our client:

→ Created something wonderful in an un-used part of the garden.

→ Natural, beautiful and seamless with the surroundings.

→ Whole family relaxation and a great place for homework.
