The Classic garden
This design was created for a couple whose children are growing up and already had space to play family games in another part of the garden. This space was to be their adult entertainment area. The objective was to create them a contemporary, unfussy design that took the modern interior outside.
The dimensions of the garden are taken from the interior floor tiles and french window. The couple wanted a water feature to keep their fish in , that would be seen from the house and on which and around they could sit and entertain.
This garden was completed to a high specification using high quality, sawn sandstone with minimal jointing and black steel edging for paths and lawn, bespoke stainless steel water blade and black fibreglass interior to the pond.
Planting is mainly evergreen and the focus is on foliage colour with almost all white flowering plants to create a calm space. Many of the plants particularly in the seating areas are also scented.
