Structure in a garden is very important, this garden follows a formal structure with a twist. The brief was to vastly reduce the original lawn area and create a lower maintenance space. Raised planters were added to frame the existing patio and provide some height making the area more secluded. A raised sleeper boarder at the base of an existing wall, breaks up the expanse of brickwork and gives the planting within instant height.
Pathways travel seamlessly round the garden with scented walkways and shrubs planting to either side. This allows the client to take a journey round the garden, opening up new spaces to enjoy. The planting follows a more formal, modern feel nearer the house and becomes less structured towards the boundaries, emphasised by the winding path edge.
