The Lower Barn Farm Outdoor Living Garden

Lifestyle Gardens
The garden is a nod to the growing trend of outdoor living and alfresco dining, designed with a young couple in mind.

An almost seamless terrace features within the garden, alongside a Corten steel bio-climatic pergola to extend entertaining time, while providing shade, shelter and style.

The outdoor kitchen allows for an alfresco dining experience, providing the ability to cook and socialise with friends, and a reflective pebble pool creates a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The planting palette blends rich and pastel tertiary colours together, with the warm oranges of Kniphofia ‘Tawny King’ (red-hot poker) and Isoplexis canariensis (Canary Island foxglove) tempered by the purples of Salvia sylvestris ‘Mainacht’ and Eryngium planum (sea holly), while the gentle browns of Astelia ‘Westland’ and Digitalis parviflora (foxglove) create a harmonious rapport between the richer colours.
