Our clients were looking for a contemporary garden that would complement their new build while still offering a relaxed sanctuary. They wanted to get the best use out of a sloping site and create impact at the entrance to their new home.
Corten steel contours are the central feature in this sweeping garden, with a blend of grasses and perennials bringing swathes of colour, movement and texture. The terracing also provides zones for veggies, fruit trees and seating, and makes for easy mowing.
Strong boundaries are created with more formal hedging to frame the naturalistic plantings within and to connect the garden with the modern house.
It was a pleasure to work with clients with green fingers and this is a gardener's garden, a beautiful blend of grasses, ornamentals and edibles, which will only become more impressive over time.
