A Contemporary Twist

This traditional property has been enhanced by a stunning glass extension to the rear. Once the hard landscaping was completed the clients commissioned us to provide a planting design for a large, sweeping border, as well as some smaller areas near the house.

We also sourced some contemporary outdoor furniture to complement the new kitchen-diner, including a stunning concrete table, bioethanol burner, designer chairs, and lounge sofa set. Bespoke planters were made to pick up on the concrete, and chair colour. This was further enhanced with shades of yellow in the planting scheme.

Screening was supplied on one boundary with pleached Hornbeam trees, above a bed of shade-loving shrubs and perennials to produce points of interest all year round.

A range of containers by the seating area allows the opportunity for seasonal displays, and herb growing, making it the perfect spot for an evening cocktail.

The overall result has softened the patio considerably, while allowing impressive views from the house.
