About the garden

Designed for a young professional couple as a relaxing, entertaining space, the At One garden demonstrates how it’s possible to create a beautiful garden space for the benefit of both humans and wildlife. The garden has a contemporary design with a light and airy feel that incorporates plenty of homes for birds, bees, butterflies and insects to live and thrive as well as planting to sustain them.

Four trees provide a framework, creating height and lending a calming dappled shade. The surrounding planting palette is predominantly restful tones of green with bright dashes of colour and plenty of interesting textures.
