The analysis of DNA banding patterns for the determination of paternity (DNA profiling) was used as inspiration for this garden.  A minimalist approach featuring  'bands' of planting interspersed with narrow bands of green astroturf.  One band is very different - a small canal - representing the Inclusion Band.  The Bridge over Troubled Water crosses this canal and a raised decking bench, the Court Bench for viewing the Evidence overlooks the entire garden.  Even the planting is symbolic - a red apple tree is inscribed Forbidden Fruit and red roses, the flower of passion and love, are mass planted in one of the bands.

The garden was designed in a response to a request from a TV

production company.
