We don’t limit your Integral Garden with ideas or interpretations.
Since ancient times, authentic garden spaces meant to reflect a unique combination of People, Time and Place. Our green spaces can reflect our individual and our collective values. Like in a mosaic, our individual qualities can co-create the collective Garden. Through an indoors plants setting or an outdoors garden experience, our inner wishes for well being, unique values of belonging and personal legacies can consciously co-create resilient, naturally evolving living systems where people relate into their own unique environment.
Beyond intellectual approaches, the human Emotional Intelligence has specific dynamics, specific energetic well-being resources for individuals, families, organizations and communities that are often not reflected, and not made accessible, by standard green spaces designs. Retrieval from the Past of encoded Unique Organizational Purpose, reflected and supported by our designs, is just an example of what we do.
We retrieve your Integral Garden Insights.
At Integral Gardens we recognize that well-being resources for individuals are different from the collective resources. And we retrieve them both for Wholeness. This is why we have developed a breakthrough practice of Insight making-meaning, that accesses and honours personal and collective truths, rendering them visible as garden elements, or complete living Vision Landscapes that we can recognize, that we can co-create, being exactly as we are already.
Through plants and natural elements vibrations, our Garden Insights become a gateway we can tune in to, to consciously connect to our energies for healthier belonging. For the Rhythm we can be part of. We don’t apply generic principles or ideas of Nature. We design co-creative processes that combine cutting-edge, global expertise in individual and collective natural health Enquiry, that retrieves Nature as direct, unfiltered resource for deeper, more sustainable belonging, together with our long standing intergenerational expertise as nurserymen, garden designers, parks restorators, landscapers and gardeners.
Integral Gardens was intentionally founded and is based in Charles Darwin’s birthplace, Shrewsbury, Shropshire. We provide our Insight-based garden design, garden landscaping, garden restorations and any other service in the United Kingdom and worldwide.
Regardless of Time, our expert Enquiry teams map and retrieve information and resources from natural systems of belonging of individuals, families, groups, organizations, communities, cultures, eco-regions, and planetary dynamics of Universal value. Whether as a brand new garden, an organizational space, a community park or as historical grounds, the result of our work is a Space that reflects, facilitates and can restore our individual and collective connections to natural forces that support our unique Journey and our collective Journeys, in flow. Individual and Collective. Here and now.
It is very difficult to explain in words the changes that have happened in our garden since we started working with Integral Gardens. The best way to describe it is to look at what has changed. We are both much less anxious about the garden now. I seem to be much happier to let the garden grow at its own pace and develop gradually. My husband finds there is a new sense of order and everything seems to be in its place which he finds relaxing.
I used to have long spells where I didn’t know what to do in certain areas of the garden. I lacked inspiration. Now I can see clearly what needs to be done. Recently I created a hydrangea wall, the entrance to which is flanked by two larger pots left to me when my parents died. The walk ends in a woodland area where I have created a series of paths.
The house seems to sit more comfortably in its plot and the view from the house out are all enticing. Each area is more distinct yet more clearly part of a coherent whole. The creative process has involved moving a lot of plants around but they have all settled happily in their new positions and I am not wasting nearly so much money on impulsive buys!
