We had a blank canvas of a sloping lawn, with a brief to make more useable, formal spaces with a classic contemporary feel. I created three levels using walling and steps, which provided space for a large lawn area, a vegetable parterre, a long formal pond flanked by pleached hornbeam and a fire pit area. Planting is structural and decorative, with plenty of seasonal interest and a cut flower garden within the formal parterre.
