IT’S A CLASSIC STYLE OF GARDEN THAT HAS WITHSTOOD THE TEST OF TIME. A SENSE OF ORDER EPITOMISES THIS GARDEN, BORDERS ARE RICH, FULL AND COLOURFUL, BUT THEY’RE ALSO NEATLY CONTAINED WITHIN THEIR BOUNDARIES.

THE RUSTIC GARDEN CAPTURES THE CHARM AND SIMPLICITY OF LIFE IN RURAL FRANCE OR ITALY. IT’S FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH PROVENCE OR TUSCANY AND WANT TO RECREATE THAT FEELING AT HOME.

THIS GARDEN CAPTURES THAT DREAM OF LIVING LIKE THE SOUTHERN EUROPEANS DO. MEMORIES OF PROVENCE, LAVENDER, FRUIT PICKING, FRESHNESS, EARTHY TEXTURES AND FRAGRANT HERBS.
A GARDEN FOR THOSE WITH A SENSE OF ADVENTURE. AN EXOTIC GARDEN SUITS THOSE WHO HAVE TRAVELLED AND WANT TO CAPTURE AND PRESERVE THAT FEELING OF DISCOVERY. IT CAN BE A CHALLENGE BUT THAT IS HALF THE FUN. THERE’S SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT A GARDEN WITH BANANA TREES, TREE FERNS, BAMBOO’S AND ALL SORTS OF RED-HOT COLOURS. NOT ALL EXOTIC PLANTS ARE “TENDER” AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER STURDY PLANTS THAT GIVE THE IMPRESSION OF EXOTICISM BUT GROW WELL IN A BRITISH CLIMATE.MOSAIC TILES, PATTERN, COLOUR & TEXTURE, VIBRANCY AND TROPICAL PLANTING.
SOPHISTICATED MINIMALISM IS THE PHRASE THAT BEST SUMS UP THIS TYPE OF GARDEN. THIS GARDEN WILL LOOK GOOD ALL YEAR ROUND AND EVOKES A SENSE OF CONTROL AND CALM.
