Use raised beds.
Raised beds are easy to maintain and they can look fantastic in your garden, adding height and character. Shuttleworth built theirs with these gorgeous wooden sleepers and set them at angles to add to the illusion of space.
The bold contrast of white gravel on black paving adds incredible definition to this garden. The right use of contrast can make your garden instantly stand out from the crowd.
Less can be more.
If you enjoy the clean lines and simple elegance of Shuttleworth’s garden, then perhaps a more minimalist design is right for you. For many people this uncluttered garden is just the serenity they need as they return home from work or life in the outside world.
