The idea of this small contemporary garden was to bring atmosphere, colour and warmness into the shaded garden. We have added mustard coloured wooden boards and a fire pit for colour and warmness. The pleasant sound of a small water feature creates atmosphere. A simple steel pergola overstretches a grey slate terrace. The terrace is big enough for a generous dining table that can host eight to ten people. A floating bench provides additional seats at the fire pit. Architectural evergreen planting of bamboo, grasses, ferns and perennials provide the garden with year-round interest.
