Contemporary Garden

Contemporary Garden: Welcome

The Garden has five functional spaces linked by paths & planting

An entrance garden, a lawn, a place to relax, a dining space and an outdoor kitchen.

The Entrance Garden

The garden is a place to stop and breath. The ethos is for quiet contemplation with a bench and water feature opposite. The garden is arranged around a circular patio paved in a contemporary limestone flag and edged in small setts.  The planting around is divided into quadrants with  rose tree standards and salvias  and contained by dwarf clipped hedging.

A wooden archway leads to a brick building. In the foreground, pink and purple flowers fill the frame.

A contemporary, rust-coloured fountain is framed by a green hedge of the same height.

Dining & Outdoor Kitchen

The dining space is marked by smooth limestone flagstones. A water feature is nestled into the planting, against a cedar clad wall.

A line of 3 evergreen shrubs act as an informal screen, dividing the kitchen area from the dining space.
The kitchen has a BBQ, pizza oven and an island unit with bar stools

A gravel path leads to a small bridge over a modern looking stream. In the background is a contemporary garden with furniture and a red brick house.

How we got there

Here’s What We Provide

New hedges in pots with no leaves sit in front of a tall wooden fence.

Boundaries are treated differently making the garden feel more spacious

Pond under construction

Contemporary garden seating on cream stone slabs sits behind a building site with tools laid around.

Final planting

Early stages

A gravel path curves into the distance with dark earth surrounding it being worked by a bright red digger.

We've come a long way
