Compact space full of interest

This garden is packed with everything you would ever need from a small garden. After down-sizing from a larger property, our clients required a low-maintenance space full of interest and geared up for outdoor entertaining and year-round use. We designed a mixed yet simple palette of materials, adding small details to each area to make the space unique and eye-catching.

The boundaries are softened by raised beds filled with mixed, seasonal and shade-tolerant planting, and trees that provide a sense of privacy and screening from surrounding neighbours without blocking light.

Over a corner terrace, an automatic louvered pergola provides protection from the elements, whether rain or shine, and covers a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen and dining space.

An extensive lighting system was designed and fitted to highlight certain focal points and features whilst extending use of the garden into the evening, no matter the season.

The lattice ball sculpture looks especially striking up-lit at night, and the reflections cast in the water bowl immediately draw the eye. A more relaxed seating area complete with cosy sofas and a central fire-table allow our clients to recline and enjoy the view across the garden.
