Fabulous sweeping herbaceous borders with punctuations of evergreen structure
Plant for your environment. This garden uses it's wider surroundings to go from lovely, to stunning
Natural, textured, perfect...
Gorgeous lavender can't be beaten
lush shade garden. Can't ever go wrong with Hydrangea 'Annabelle's
shade planting beneath seating helps to soften hard landscaping and give texture to the garden
absolutely gorgeous buxus balls. The lack of symmetry really gives this garden some life!
restricting your colour palette will also help to make a contemporary garden
Buxus sempervirens and hakonachloa on a dark background...A fabulous grouping
All this needs is an Olive tree. Feature specimens can really make a garden
Cool jungle garden. The flashes of red really jump out as well
Clearly quite a shady garden. Doesn't have to be boring though!
Formal, contemporary, stages the garden beautifully.
Planting can be a dynamic and interesting way of dividing space up
Symmetrical...but not too symmetrical. The cut in the hedge provides a perfect axis and great depth
Even a little grown out, the structure is still there. This garden has a lovely texture and naturalness to it
Sometimes grass is all you need to make a garden shine
having deep planting between a house and a seating area can give a garden depth, interest and seclusion
I cannot emphasise enough how much I love this Stipa arundinacea!
Sometimes less is more...
Need I say anything about this courtyard?
cool mixture of raised beds and ground level beds, and productive and ornamental planting
David Harber in amongst some great contemporary English planting
English formality at it's finest
A jungle garden to dream of!
Not a flower in sight and still fabulous!
Really nice example of traditional topiary with a contemporary edge
Love the use of Stipa tenuissima here. It works really well with the gravel and stonework.
Can't beat a good set of pleached trees. Great screening in built up areas and provides interest without taking up too much garden space.
Love this. The hard landscaping materials make this a contemporary London style garden, whilst the planting softens it all and gives some pizazz. The silver birches provide some great dramatic vertical emphasis
simple, contemporary and interesting to look on when you're tight on space!
fab shady planting if the slugs don't get it! The block planting gives this a more contemporary edge as well
