This garden was a collaboration with the architect owner. A retirement project, we wanted to use the site to provide all the opportunities that time on your hands can provide in the garden.

Keeping the existing levels, and by moving the garage to the side of the house, we were able to create an elegant and contemporary sitting area in a sunny spot of the garden. A low, curved wall encompasses the seating area with elegant planting in blues, silvers and greys establishing behind the wall. A pergola planted with a selection of the client’s favourite roses leads up to the higher level lawn, which is surrounded by herbaceous borders.
