Artistry and Consciousness help garden business to go global

A Shropshire landscape garden business is blossoming after pioneering the use of human consciousness and artists to work with landscape architects to create 21st century gardens that reflect life journeys and peace and beauty.

Carlo Cecchetti found that traditional methods of garden design were not always reflecting and supporting the householders’ truer personalities and unique life journeys, so he came up with a new way of approaching the task.

The new methods – called ‘Garden Insights’ – create or restore garden spaces based on the distinctive information from the garden owner’s conscious systems, that resource energies for creativity, health and well-being. Each Integral Garden is formed by its exclusive Garden Insights, that users can tune into.

Some of the unique Garden Insights have been found, for example, are: fountains with script, swing seats for unseen children, sheltered tree areas for protection and white roses to restore belonging; the work of Integral Gardens, which is based in Shrewsbury, can be seen in private gardens and outdoor spaces from Cheshire to India.

Carlo brings a wealth of experience to the business. He hails from a family with three generations working in garden design, landscaping and horticulture - his freelance associate brother Luciano Cecchetti has been Head Gardener at The Vatican Garden Networks – and he has run his business in Italy and Britain for just under 30 years. The team includes young vibrant landscape architects, integral artists and human consciousness experts.

The business’s work covers private gardens to public parks, and organizational green spaces to leisure centres.

One happy customer said: “We are 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. 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. Each area is more distinct, yet more clearly part of a coherent whole. I am not wasting nearly so much money now on impulsive buys.”

Carlo said: “Our intention is to create, or restore regardless of Time, gardens based upon the owner’s personal values and life journeys, making visible and accessible their own authentic natural energy resources of well-being and creativity, that traditional garden design methods were often overlooking. We are on the path to help owners to access their own Emotional Intelligence energies through their own garden spaces.

“An Integral Garden is a unique energy combination of People, Place and Time, both for indoor and outdoor garden settings. Gardens vibrate naturally. Our Purpose, using qualified landscape architects with a wide range of technical and stylistic solutions, as well as consciousness experts and integral artists, is to create spaces for peace and beauty.

“An extremely promising solution is the unique Organisational Purpose Garden. Members of an organisation can physically see, tune-in and connect through Garden Insights the ongoing energies that inform and resource their organisational work. We can also design spaces to help sustain the organisation’s health, or for co-creating new organisational value.”
