The back garden has been designed to soften the large expanse of patio area around the house. The colour scheme present throughout the garden is warm, with different shades that create a relaxed mood and feel in the planting.
The planting throughout is a mixture of large shrubs, perennials, grasses and bulbs. These are broken by buxus hedges and topiary such as cones and balls.
I used them to surround both gardens, and continued the theme in the planting of the patio pots. My aim was to connect the garden spaces, to provide a degree of formality that contrasts with the informal shapes of other shrubs.
