Chelsea – A Cancer Journey Metaphor Garden

This garden is a contemporary, abstract, version of a coastal garden using water, coastal plants, timber and rock. The design thought behind it is the journey, a steady climb up through the landscape from a barren shore to a lush refuge representing a cancer survivor’s journey through their illness phases. The route is not direct, and involves changes in direction, and highs and lows — much like the cancer survivor’s experience. I found that to be a rather nice thought. Pretty and poetic.


I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.
