Clean and modern, this garden carried through the character of the new interior of the house to the outside space. With a young family, the client wanted low maintenance and water. Fountains were used in conjunction with hidden reservoirs to allow for this in complete safety.
Focal planting such as this buxus topiary can add elegance and class to any space, in this instance used to great effect as a focal centre piece within a Victorian front garden. Box is classical in style, perfectly suited to be used as edging to borders or as a stand-alone feature as seen here.
A narrow dark strip of land was simply transformed into a space that offered a pleasant bright seating area and formal low maintenance planting. The use of Cotswold gravel contrasted very well with the clean, simple planting. Adding trellis was enough to divide the space into separate ‘rooms’.
