Surrey Hills Landscaping will be working with exciting garden designer Jennifer Jones to create a show garden at this years RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
Inspired by the ancient Inca civilisation of Peru who were pioneers in botany and horticulture, Journey Latin America’s Pachamama Garden takes its name from the revered Inca goddess Mother Earth and evokes a sense of adventure, travel and discovery of a mysterious lost culture; the same emotions felt by American explorer Hiram Bingham upon his discovery of the ‘lost’ Inca citadel of Machu Picchu high in the Peruvian Andes in 1911.
Thick native tropical plants surround the garden’s entrance and hide a dramatic three-tiered terrace that echoes the famous Inca terraces at Machu Picchu. The intricate dry stone walling pays homage to the highly skilled trademark stonework of the Incas.
The sound of falling water creates a peaceful, harmonious atmosphere and completes the four cosmological principles the Incas believed originated from Pachamama: sun, moon, earth and water.
Journey Latin America is a specialist in travel to Latin-America and has been creating award-winning holidays to the region for 36 years. Pachamama Garden is co-sponsored by British Airways who offer regular direct flights from London Gatwick to Lima and Inkaterra, an eco and sustainable tourism pioneer operating luxury hotels and conservation projects across Peru.
