The garden is inspired by science and mathematics, with sculptures and landscaping on these themes, such as Black Holes and Fractals.
The garden is not abundant with plants, but sets mathematical formulae
and scientific phenomenae in a setting which elegantly combines natural
features and artificial symmetry and curves. It is probably unique among
gardens, drawing comparisons with a similarly abstract garden in
Scotland, Little Sparta.
