DESIGN: Our Must-Use List of Plants in Bower Landscaping

THERE'S SUPER EXCITING THINGS HAPPENING AT THE BOWER WITH NEW LUXURY ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS BEING BUILT AS WE TYPE. THE DETAILS ARE STILL A LITTLE HUSH-HUSH, BUT WHAT WE CAN TELL YOU IS THAT THEIR DESIGN IS PUSHING THE BOWER BOUNDARIES.

There’ll be lots of sophisticated new elements blended perfectly with our signature aesthetic and the new accoms are just steps away from The Bower’s heated mineral pool oasis.  All will have our fab new mini-bar menu of course, but the best news?  They’ll be ready for Summer!  We’ll let you know as soon as we’re ready to take bookings.  Exciting times for us and hopefully you too, and we’d love you to be the first to visit. 

 

Of course lush landscaping is a must. It has to be abundant, purposeful, structural, fragrant.  Just as the right size, scale and type of rugs, furniture, drapery and accessories define an internal space, so too does the right landscaping.  It has to be bespoke to the space whether it’s in the creation of a courtyard tucked outside one of the Bower Suites smelling sweetly of star jasmine, a secret, lush green nook for an outdoor shower, or the tropical paradise that surrounds the round mineral Bower pool with layers of heights, textures, colours and scents.  

 

Daniel Kemp from Elemental Gardens has long been part of our design team helping us create and execute our vision, project after project.  He’s put together a list of Bower must-haves when landscaping and ones that are going to be tucked in and around our new builds….
