Picture window garden

This client wanted a garden with a difference.  Their plan was to work from home with an office at the bottom of the garden.  They wanted something that was modern and contemporary with striking features.  This garden was designed with all these things in mind:

  • The white rendered picture window wall was created to give a defined patio/seating area by the house but also with a view through to the office.
  • The fence runs horizontally and rather than being standard panels it is constructed using different width boards to add interest.
  • The stepping stone path creates a walk way from the house to the office.
  • Plants have been selected to compliment the modern feel – an olive tree, bamboos, a tree fern, phormiums.

All of this together created a garden with two sections – a modern industrial looking patio area with the white rendered walls, grey paving and structured plants up by the house and a office garden retreat at the other end with the cedar office and softer planting.
