The APL Garden for Ascot titled ‘What Lies Beneath’ has been designed as more of an educational piece of landscaping where the public will be invited to walk onto the garden in which there are exposed sections of hard landscaping/decking that will reveal the construction methods used and the layers needed to achieve a solid well-built finish.
Talks will be held throughout each day to educate and go through the various methods used by a professional landscaper from the Association of Professional Landscapers.
