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 designed and developed a website that showcases a stunning garden that is appealing to both families and horticultural enthusiasts. It was crucial for us to include images of people in the website and we decided to do this with fun and friendly illustrations. The garden serves as a peaceful retreat for mental and physical wellbeing, and most of the maintenance work is done by volunteers.
