Garden of Mindful Living

A contemporary modern garden owned by a busy city client has been inspired by the love of Far Eastern travel, yoga and a requirement for a calm space in which to relax after a busy day at work. The design incorporates clean lines and smart details such as Corten walls, subtle grey-splashed limestone, and large sliding shutters that open to reveal the sparkling city views at night.
Large multi-stemmed trees provide dappled shade over a planting palette of soft greens and yellow primulas, which dance besides secret rills of water that escape through blocks of limestone. The planting creates a gentle, calm and relaxing space to unwind and restore one's life balance.
