About the Garden

Designed for a property within a new housing development in the Cotswolds, this garden has a contemporary feel with spaces for both children and adults to enjoy.

Cotswold stone walling with built-in seating replicates local materials while sawn sandstone paving adds a contemporary look. The space includes a corten steel kinetic sculpture and water feature with a lawned area for young children to play. 

Grasses, white flowers and varying colours and textures of foliage are included in the planting together with pleached hornbeams that provide privacy.
