Helmsley Walled Garden
Built in 1759, Helmsley Walled Garden sits beneath the imposing ruins of Helmsley Castle. After World War One and the garden’s purpose as a provider of food for the family ceased. Left to dereliction it slumbered until 1994 when a local practice nurse saw its potential. She wanted it to be a beautiful garden to visit but also somewhere where people could benefit from therapeutic horticulture. Today the gardens are developed and maintained by a small core of staff with the help of a dedicated band of volunteers. They believe that the engagement of individuals with horticultural activity to improve their physical and mental health and well being.
We created a website that communicates a beautifully designed and maintained garden that is a joy for families and horticulturalists alike. It was also important to illustrate people and plants! As the garden provides a space for mental and physical wellbeing and the majority of the work is carried out by volunteers.
Thanks to Tom Woolly, Richard Berry and James Hudson for joining us on this project to provide illustration, branding and animation.
