The M&G Garden was designed by Cleve West and built by Swatton Landscape. The inspiration for the M&G Garden came from garden designer Cleve West’s memories of time spent during his teenage years, in an ancient oak woodland, in Exmoor National Park. Cleve opted to create a contemporary design, which features aspects of the ancient woodland that inspired him, instead of recreating a particular area of Exmoor National Park. Oaks – Quercus pubescens, form the main structure of this garden, they evoke the sponsor, M&G’s, values of strength, growth, longevity and reliability.
