Artisan furniture makers were commissioned to create a curved bench and elliptical dining table to match in Iroko hardwood.
The hard landscaping also featured soft curving lines with a double border of sandstone cobbles to blend in with the soft buff tones of the sandstone of the new terrace. More curves were added with a curved top gate with trompe l’oeil mirrored window effect, and curving trellis panels. Up lighters add drama for evening entertaining and an irrigation system helps maintain the plants.
Keeping to the curved theme and the clients wishes for classic ‘English’ garden style – large box balls and lollipop standard Bay trees provided the structure and add height to disguise the urban scenery. As the space is a ‘walled’ garden on all sides and facing due south, the scheme features many scented flowering plants such as wisteria, jasmine, roses, lavender, and peonies to fill the air with their glorious perfume.
