Bonded gravel unites the contrasting materials, and provides a contemporary twist. The plants were selected to soften the strong lines of the hard landscaping.

Planting is mostly evergreen shrubs with varied leaf shape and requires little maintenance. Ground cover roses, agapanthus and bulbs provide the accent colour.
