The John Madejski Garden opened on 5 July 2005 and is a central part of the V&A’s. 

The design of the garden is very simple, only several elements were involved into the design: well-kept lawn (learn how to make the same perfect lawn with Contractor Culture) and fountain, but the design is very consistent with the museum. The colour of the garden is also concise: red and green. Plantings in this garden are used very limited here, not redundant decoration has been used here.

Only Hydrangea macrophylla has been used at the edge of the garden.

As can be seen from the picture below, quite a lot of leisure spaces are left to offer people a resting area.

it is not only offering visitors a place to have lunch, it also gives a area for people to chatting and communicate with each other after visiting the the art works in the V&A museum.

The structure of the garden is symmetric, which gives a solemn and neat sense to people and conform to the museum’s atmosphere, simultaneously. The fountain breaks up the serious symmetric picture and adds some movement to the garden. It reflects the buildings in the water, and attracts lots of children having fun here.
