The small 6M x 10M garden already had a new blue/grey limestone patio outside the house. A second small seating area was required outside the studio.

The planting was key to the success of the design, the owners wanted to create an instant garden which looked great all year round from the house and studio.

They asked for shades of green and interesting leaf textures; with some flower colour. A mix of blues and white was the preferred palate. The garden also needed to be easy to maintain.
