'A restricted plant palette is the hardest garden to do but compliments clean lines and a minimal design. A terrace of Italian basalt with a reflective pool and raised water rill with stainless steel detailing has created a calm area with clean geometry. A simple flush balau deck, helps to define the separate dining space. Clipped hedging and pleached trees support the strong architectural design, whilst creating a feeling of enclosure. And our penchant for tall grasses mixed with clipped shapes adds the finishing touches.'
