The Brief:

To create a modern garden with lots of colour from spring to autumn, with some interest in winter. The garden was to have a seating area for a large family as well as a space to BBQ. Incorporated into the scheme was to be screening for a new shed, a space for a sculpture and a lawn area.

The Garden:

The garden was designed with the patio to the rear to make the most of the sun and a zig-zag path through chunky arches and raised beds full of perennial planting. The opposing side of the space was made into a 'secret garden' using Stipa gigantea to form a translucent hedge across the garden dividing the area into separate spaces. This second area featured a Chinese terracotta Emperor standing amidst oriental planting, with a similarly themed fence and gate backdrop.
