Travel Theme: Cambodia, Morocco, Florida
The garden is laid out as though viewed from the house, the designer has included elements inspired from several different country’s, reflecting the clients love of travel.
Marshalls Symphony Blauw paving takes you from the house on to the patio/seating area, matching paving leads you along the rill inspired by those at the Yves Saint Laurent gardens. The rill leads you on to the hardwood decking, built on stilts to reflect the clients time staying Southern Florida.
The planting is heavy on foliage, using plenty of large leafed shrubs and warm colors to suggest a more exotic location then the British climate can always offer!
An irrigation system will be installed to keep the garden in good health during the summers as they continue to travels and visit new place and the lack of a lawn means less regular maintenance is required.
A boundary wall clad in Marshalls slate verte dry stack walling hugs the side of the garden, with pockets of planting breaking up the stone and reminding them of visits to picturesque ruins.
The left hand boundary is constructed using different heights of 75mm x 100mm treated timber, lightly coloured to create a solid screen whilst still allowing light to penetrate.
