In keeping with the new extension at the rear of their home, this client wanted a strong design offset with sophistcated planting in a colour palette of white and purples. Amelancier lamarkii trees were added for height and structure and Taxus bacatta topiary introduced for dark evergreen form. Sawn York stone edged the lawn and was used to pave both the main and upper terrace, where designer furniture, sourced by Butter, added a chic and contemporary note. A water feature, running along a wall from the gardem house, makes this a truly relaxing place to be.
