Project: Patio garden
Location: Polegate, East Sussex
Timescale: 14 weeks
This garden was designed around an existing swimming pool. The sunny side of the garden and around the pool were paved with polished sandstone. This followed onto the house patio that is in matching riven sandstone with a feature circle. The curves in this garden spring from this circle and lead onto a meandering brick path. This leads you down to a large lawn area.
Behind the pool is a decked area with a pergola over. The decking links the pool, changing room and the hot tub. The beds have low level planting to prevent dividing the garden. The beds are punctuated by feature trees, mainly Acers (Japanese Maples). This garden has low maintenance features such as the use of slate chippings and permeable membrane. The garden is great for entertaining and summer parties.
