description

This layout is a good example of where the usage of an artificial lawn promotes the design; square holes are cut into the lawn for birches, lavenders and jasmines creating a clean and easy-to- maintain look. The existing reclaimed brick walls go well with the timber in the garden: most of the planting belongs to the three raised beds, which ties in with the daybed and the office at the rear. The outdoor room has a cedar clapboard cover and metal framed entrance and is connected to a hidden shed behind the bamboo for garden tools.

“Contemporary gardens usually have simple evergreen planting, but we wanted to make this one more interesting to fit into the landscape: even though the layout is highly rectangular, the raised beds have cottage style planting which softens the whole garden.”
