Sculpture For the Garden at the Savill Garden

Grassclippings - The Royal Landscape @ Savill GardensSculpture For the Garden event: Garden exhibition showing of new imaginative and innovative sculptures which are available to purchase at The Savill Garden. 
The Savill Garden is one of Britain’s finest ornamental gardens. This garden blooms all years round and has something amazing to offer, no matter the season. Loved by horticulturalists and gardening enthusiasts, visitors roam the 35 acres of beauty and colour each year to discover new flowers, plants, wildlife and different layouts of the garden. With interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland, the Savill Garden is a major attraction for people all over the country and is loved by many.

During September and October, visitors to The Savill Garden will be able to explore and enjoy a display of imaginative and innovative sculptures which form an exciting exhibition for all to see. The sculptures, which have been inspired by the natural world, are available to purchase upon visiting the gardens and standard Savill Garden entry fees apply.

Many people are looking forward to the ‘Sculpture for the Garden’ show which finishes at the end of October. The Head of The Savill Garden, Harvey Stephens, who is very excited about the event, said: "The exhibition is intended to appeal to people with gardens of all sizes and the sculptures are affordably priced. The Savill Garden is the perfect backdrop to enjoy these imaginative sculptures. With thirty-eight pieces, there is something interesting around every corner. The materials used include stainless steel, copper, brass and blown glass which are striking against the natural backdrop of the Garden."

Sculptor and exhibition organiser, Mike Bigland added: "My sculptures do not imitate nature but draw from the essential structure and representation of the plants. The pieces enhance summer plantings and provide plants and flowers through the winter against a backdrop of stone walls, hedges and evergreen areas. They also provide a habitat for insects and shelter from predators. The structures warm up quickly in the sun which attracts insects;and catch the snow in the winter."

Considering the strange weather we have had so far this Autumn, the Savill Garden looks stunning and is the perfect location for displaying the beautiful sculptures.


Over the last few years, innovative new planting has taken place and has created flowing ribbons of intense primary colours from yellow through orange to red and purple. This technique has created beautiful borders throughout the garden, splitting it up into different sections, giving the garden a modern twist.


Veranda specialists, Veranda Living, love visiting The Savill Garden whenever they get the chance. They have said many times that they enjoy visiting the garden during different seasons to see how everything changes. Jon, Owner of Veranda Living, said: “We’re very much looking forward to visiting The Savill Garden to see the latest addition, the sculptures. I think the sculptures will fit in perfectly with the garden and will be a great added piece.” Throughout the month of October, visitors are able to enjoy the glorious colours of autumn, with magnificent displays of flowers and trees, creating a beautiful setting for the new sculptures.

Once you have walked around the 35 acres which make up The Savill Garden, visitors can walk around the Savill Building and enjoy a lovely meal or a warm coffee in The Savill Restaurant or the Gallery Coffee Shop. There is also a gift shop available and an outdoor plant centre, where you can purchase potted plants and take them home with you.
