Client profile.

Our client wanted to redesign their traditional garden to complement a new glazed corner extension housing an indoor swimming pool. 

We designed a contemporary outdoor space with characterful focal points to provide intriguing perspectives.

Materials & Planting.

The slate veneer-clad feature wall and fireplace beautifully offsets silvery porcelain tiles and blue-brick pavers. 

The cool-hued landscaping materials marry together creating a contemporary aesthetic with clean lines defined zones. 

We retained the garden's low-level boundary planting and incorporated feature trees in our planting scheme for vertical interest.

 

Frothy Pennesitum and sculptural Himalayan Birch trees border the lawn and soften the garden's rectilinear design.

symmetry and spotlighting

Clever spotlighting highlights zones and maps out routes across the garden. 

Symmetrical pause points create a formal structure with mirrored feature beds framing the lawn.

These spotlit focal points illuminate the garden after sunset for ambience and warmth.

rule of three

A trio of Amelanchier Lamarckii trees are nestled in a decorative pebble bed.

 

The sculptural branches and delicate foliage  frame the sleek triple-fountained water table.

Trios of focal points provide intriguing perspectives and complement the garden's symmetrical zoning.
