A bright, modern contemporary garden with drystone walling (Donegal quartz) in raised circular beds creates a formal but cozy space with warm tones for al fresco dining on long summer evenings.

Gold granite paving complements the drystone walling adding further warm tones to the garden. With a nod to the Mediterranean with planting that includes olive trees, lavender, Agapanthus and culinary garden herbs.  A pergola painted in Farrow & Ball ‘Pigeon’ provides an architectural feature to the garden and a sunny spot to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. Seating in the form of an old park bench (a family heirloom) is set on beautiful blue limestone cobbles adding texture and interest to the space. Extra privacy and height were added to the garden via the use of horizontal screening placed around the perimeter. This is an elegant garden for grown-ups.
