The interpretation, in hard landscaping, of a giant heartbeat scan provides the structure of the design, and represents life. The garden aims to focus attention and sympathy on communities suffering from violent outbursts across the world.
The garden is planted with species that we may see every day in our gardens but could also cause harm or are poisonous. Together with the heartbeat, they represent the beauty of life, which is often dangerous and fragile.

Kateřina Rafaj has graduated with a Bachelor degree in Garden and Landscape maintenance Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague and has a degree from the London College of Garden Design.
"I love gardens and landscapes; I am passionate about using space cleverly and celebrating the strength in every landscape. Attention to detail is very important in my work and I take pride in making all the small things right." Kateřina Rafaj
