Brief:

A new build property garden that needed a careful design for its difficult space. The client required a simple and uncomplicated approach, seating and entertaining area to complement the fine living spaces of the interior.

Contrasting colours, smooth surfaces and structures that work with the formality of the terrace and formal planting. The stone elements to the exterior structure of the terrace were matched by the ceramic paving in straight form that surrounds a central timber decking completed the terrace. The bespoke planters that wrapped the contours of the existing wall and allowed the space to be wrapped with planting. Evergreen Buxus creates warmth to the perimeter whilst the monotony of the wall is disrupted by the Olea Europa and Ligustrum half standards separated with fragrant Rosmarinus prostratus and Thymus various The families refurbished teak bench was a welcome surprise, it is over 40 years old.
