al fresco entertaining
Our clients in Surrey wanted the ultimate summertime garden to swim, sunbathe and sip cocktails in the sunshine.
We designed lively zones and tranquil hubs to create the perfect space for both entertaining and unwinding.
Pretty perspectives and focal points can be admired from every angle and offer attractive views from the property's corner bifold glazing.
Materials & Planting.
Dark composite decking provides a durable and non-slip surface by the garden's wetter areas.
Porcelain paving slabs offer neutral tones to contrast with the decking and low-level foliage.
Pleached trees border the garden's boundaries for screening and sculptural interest.
A cottage planting scheme thrives in this South facing, sun-filled garden.
Colourful blooms and perfumed scents liven the space during summer months when the garden is frequently occupied.
Flowering Nepeta, flowing Calamagrostis, and Myrtus trees soften the garden's rectilinear design with their frothy blossoms and textural bark.
A picture-perfect pathway encompasses and connects each zone in our design.
Large porcelain paving slabs are laid as stepping-stones and infilled with pretty Erigeron planting.
The 'cottagey' ground cover softens and contrasts with the contemporary hard landscaping materials.
A Corten steel half pergola frames the lounge-seating firepit area.
The framework's texture and weathered patina is a contrasting aesthetic in the design, creating an attractive focal point.
Corten steel is echoed throughout the design as a vertical screen behind the outdoor kitchen and the corner bifold surround.
The overall design has a very open-plan feel to encourage cross interaction across each zone.
Ample seating ares by the poolside, hot tub, bar, and terraces accommodate large gatherings for our clients to comfortably entertain.
