Makeover at the John Radcliffe Hospital
We are proud to have been involved with an exciting project to transform a previously disused garden area at the Women’s Centre in the John Radcliffe Hospital into an attractive area for staff and patients.
Oxford Garden Design’s MD, Sheena Marsh, redesigned the garden in the Women’s centre at the John Radcliffe and provided her guidance and support to a group of volunteers from Unipart who gave up two days to clear the area and plant around 500 plants. The garden was been finished off with two sculptures designed by Christopher Townsend.
Our vision for the garden
Sheena advised on the selection of plants, which need only minimal maintenance and yet provide a display of colour and fragrance. The plants were specially chosen to cope with the hot dry conditions and herbs, traditionally used in healing, such as Rosemary, Thyme and Lavender were used in abundance.

The Finished Garden at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxfordshire
“I was delighted with the finished garden which has been transformed from an eyesore into a place of peace and reflection for patients.
The team at Unipart worked so hard to clear, weed, dig, tidy and plant to bring joy to the many people who use the garden.”
