Hugo Bugg was invited to design a garden at Singapore Garden Festival 2016. ‘Mystical Depths’ is a show garden within the fantasy category.
The woodland landscape is an imagined world which holds secrets deep within, this garden will captivate the imagination of those who seek it out. A busy woodland floor; represented through a myriad of green planting, envelops mythical pools that lie beneath. The planting runs across a striking architectural landscape, giving the garden a gradient depictive of undulating hills. These run endlessly into the mirrored boundary which encompasses the garden. This mirrored perspective adds to the fantasy by reflecting an illusion of a circular pool at one end of the garden; a play on the imaginary world that the pools contain. The mystery of the dark waters and the spheres themselves are illuminated with ultra violet lights and a spectacular glow of lighting intertwined within the grasses and ferns.
