The starting point and inspiration for this design is Doris, a mid-1950s aluminium caravan now tucked away in a sheltered and southerly corner of the garden. The garden is a relaxing space for the owner to use as a retreat; beautiful birch Betula albosinensis ‘Fascination’ tower over a palette of pink and cream planting that includes roses, salvias, irises and grasses.

Tactile details such as timber decking and sandstone paths, and a water rill that doubles as a wine chiller, encourage barefoot exploration of the garden. There are plenty of places to pause and enjoy the view with undulating timber benches and a hammock, partially screened by reclaimed timber posts.
