Contemporary Poole garden
Following completion of an extension to the house in Poole, Dorset the client asked me to redesign the small garden. A low maintenance garden was required with a sculptural water feature and travertine paving. The design places a glass water feature centrally to contain the eye within the space and to act as a transparent divider that will create interesting ripple reflections on surfaces as the sun shines through it. Sculptural planting is to be lit at night and low dry stone walls provide vertical accents that break up the space and provide a visual connection to the drought tolerant planting. Scented planting is included to make the most of the enclosed, sheltered location.
