Design Brief;

Whilst completing other phases of work in the garden we started talking about an area that had been created when hedging was put in the garden. We came up with a concept based on a simple set of paths linking up with a central paved area that would sit beneath a large Oak pergola with a central feature. To deal with the awkward shape at the boundary a bench was set in front of a border of planting to give a place to sit, relax and enjoy the abundance of colour, texture and shape of planting that was to form the cutting flowers for the clients own floral arranging. Roses and Clematis are being trained to cover the Pergola and the client has sourced reclaimed architectural pieces to finish off and complement the area. Subtle spot lighting gives interest when the sun sets and gives an extra layer of interest.
