Contemporary Sea View
The clients brief was to create a garden that was beautiful to look at and functional for adults and dogs. It needed to include a formal area, cosy seating and to be low maintenance. The design needed to maintain and enhance sea views and solve problems like boring boundaries, overlooked neighbours and neighbouring rooftops.
Our response was to reinforce the linear nature of the plot by introducing a strong central axis in the form of a wide path ending in a beautiful bespoke sculpture. A gap in the lower hedge allows the eye to be drawn up and over to the sea views while the rest of the hedge masks the rooftops and creates a great backdrop for some beautiful sub-tropical style planting.
Using a mix of Dara Brazilian slate and cream porcelain, we created a spacious dining and entertaining area. Screens front and back of the bespoke seating area create privacy form neighbouring properties, reinforced by taller planting both front and back.
