Small Contemporary Garden

A transformation from an overgrown unusually shaped garden to a contemporary space in which to relax and entertain. Features include Corten steel walls, edging, planters and water feature, as well as sleek porcelain paving, retained gravel pathways, and granite setts. 

The planting is in a restrained palette of purples, green and white. It features ferns, grasses, Agapanthus, Salvias and Geraniums, as well as other herbaceous perennials and spring bulbs for seasonal interest. A multi-stemmed Birch, and Amelanchier create height and structure, and blur the boundaries in this small space.

Umbrella-trained Lime trees provide a shady seating area in the summer, while Corten steel walls create impressive screening to the utility area beyond.
