Looking back towards the staircase, its sculptural lines enhance the interior of the house. The owners say the under-stair garden brings the outside garden inside and “adds a dramatic green element to the stunning form of the stairs”.Planted around the base of the staircase is Aspidistra, once christened the cast-iron plant due to its ability to cope with low light, dust and minimal water. Aspidistra can also be planted outside in warm, shady locations.
