Stylish Town Garden

By Garden Designers KURITA-MAY designscape. The garden was designed for a hard-working couple to create 'Chill-Out' and socialising spaces in order to take advantage of their valuable spare time at home.

The clients wished the new garden to be 'something simple, stylish, and practical'.

Kurita may stylish town gardenIn order to transform their existing awkward 'long and narrow' garden we laid out three functional spaces using angles effectively to fulfil the clients' requirements for the new garden. - decked area, central seating space, and Secret Garden at the rear. This picture above shows the central 'Chill-Out' space with customised steel planters & benches.

Key plants for this garden are: Black Bamboos (Phyllostachys nigra), sweet boxes (Sarcococca hookeriana var. humilis), Euphorbia amygdaloides 'Purpurea', Scabiosa autropurpurea 'Chile Black', grasses (Eragrostis trichodes), Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Blue Spire'), and passion fruit (Passiflora caerulea)

Black foliage of Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' looks great with snow drops (Galanthus nivalis) against white stone chippings.
