The design requirement for this garden centre was to create a ' fascinating indoor environment in contrast with the drab shops generally set up by nurserymen and seed merchants.

Inside a large sky-lit hall, an informal meandering path takes the shoppers around to various 'plant beds" where the plants are displayed for sale. The merchandise, also becomes part of landscape design, lending a variety of colors and textures to the whole ambience. A small fountain at the entrance and certain permanent beds of not-for-sale plants, especially the stunning collection of Echinocactus, retain the visual continuity. The shoppers, thus, have an experience of being in a garden while shopping for their favourite plants and seeds.
