About the garden 

Mixing sleek hard landscaping with drifts of soft planting, the garden provides a contemporary yet relaxing city haven for a professional couple in which to unwind.

The garden is inspired by the Silent Pool Distillery, located in the beautiful Surrey Hills. The materials are influnced by the distiller’s careful selection and, where possible, locally sourced ingredients. A raised, infinity-edged water feature reflects the spring-fed Silent Pool, a source of water for the gin. UK-sourced materials used in the garden include textural Portland stone, Purbeck walling and weathered oak. The gin-making process is represented through laser-cut copper panels, copper distillation helmets and a central ‘citrus peel’ sculpture. Multi-stemmed trees create a canopy for a layer of privacy.

The planting, in tones of blues, whites, greens and copper, blends to create a calming ambience. Five of Silent Pool Gin’s 24 botanicals have been used, including angelica, iris and rose.
