Sustainable Garden - Bangladeshi Allotment
Sustainable Garden - Bangladeshi Allotment
Jeff Travers (A3Landscape)

This garden shows how sustainable Bangladeshi tropical vegetable gardening adapts tenaciously to London allotments within ramshackle enclosures. To create a high quality design, Jeff Travers has formalised the garden into a small cubic parterre (a microcosm of Potager du Roi at Versailles - Wren's inspiration). Strange plants and curiosities parody the formal indulgence of Western gardening culture, and Laugier's iconic hut becomes a 'dooghie-house'. The garden consists of recycled structures for beans and gourds around a herb lawn edged in amaranth (dooghie) and coriander, to Laugier's formal principles. Though cheerful from the outside, within it is sombre, with funereal white-flowered gourds and dark beans symbolising Bangladesh's increasing floods and England's allotments lost to unproductive municipal landscaping. Only sunflowers conjure hope.
