The garden has a mixture of hard landscaping and raised flower beds all rolling into one.
Traditionally when people make raised beds, they are usually rectangular, but here they’re made into curvaceous shapes to give a nice fluid movement akin to rolling sea waves.
To create a spacious and open feel, it wavers not only in shape but also in height.
We enveloped the beds with wooden panels painted in a dark coat to give a chic and subtle look, which was all finished off by interlaced pathways of Brazilian slate paving sets from Pavestone.
Interspersed with the varying colours of ‘Anthracite’ SlimSett paving which can be easily manipulated into swirling pathways, we were able to provide a great deal of texture and motion to the space with the linear bricks drawing you down the path into sections laid with big pavers. These sections urge you to stop and take stock of each nook.
Through its intricacy, the garden gave an optical illusion, making it larger than it was. With a combination of the segregated hard landscaping, highs and lows of the raised beds and sloping pathways we were able to create something quite sublime.
