As with many of our clients, their garden had served its purpose as an enjoyable family space. With kids growing up and moving on it was time for the space to develop with them.
A contemporary sleeper wall was used to create some unobtrusive structure in the garden whilst a large Corten Steel table Rill was used to act as a focal point on the patio. A Corten garden arch carries the contemporary feel and this colour pallet is picked up in the vibrant Geums and Heleniums throughout the planting. Repeating contemporary planting was set out though the meandering beds, drawing you down towards a bench set into the new planting. The traditional purples, pinks and whites of the cottage style are set off against the vibrant and industrial oranges.
