A formal garden in a narrow space, this design created focus on the front door and provided a variety of interesting plants in a controlled way.
The planting selection is colorful throughout the year using annuals and perennials as well as flowering trees and shrubs.
A natural shelf of bedrock formed the patio at the very edge of the water, but the size was increased by installing a boulder retaining wall. The custom designed fence was created to mimic the waves as well as to prevent falling off the patio to the rocks below!
There is so much you can do with fencing. Here the scale of the fence was in keeping with a large, historic, stone house and the need for privacy. Tree poles were sourced locally for the top and over-size finials were turned by a neighbour.
