Slate Terrace Contemporary Garden

The clean, buoyant look of this contemporary garden creates an inviting environment for entertainment, dining and children's recreation. The garden features a linear design which is angled to enhance the visual space. The garden design reflects that of the house, particularly in the generous slate terrace and white rendered walls.

The planting is composed of cubes and hedging, with a fun route to the playhouse, partially screened by a Yew hedge. English roses, silver and bronze grasses, lavenders and perennials in soft pinks, purples and whites add a feminine character to the garden, softening the sharp lines and crisp design. There is a good balance between the ornamental olive trees and the bay lollipops. The fencing is smothered in climbing plants.
