About the Garden

Around it are deep, long borders, full of vibrancy and pattern, with plants chosen specifically for their foliage. Varied leaf shapes create an exotic atmosphere, evoking the feel of a different climate but with plants that can happily grow in the UK - including some plants from the subtropics. 

Set within a large private garden, rich, bright colours play an important role in the scheme. A still pond reflects plant shapes and patterns back into the garden adding depth to the space. A small decked seating area allowing quiet reflection.
