Californian garden

The concept

Gardens rich in green textural planting with year round durability and simple yet striking designing details which draw on both nature and modern materials for inspiration. Entertaining on wide terraces are a cornerstone of the Californian way of life.

Shrubs

A rich range of evergreen shrubs with masses of summer flowers or texture provide a sense of permanence. Bold clumps will better replicate the verdant feel of a Californian garden.

Accessories

To really create the warmth and vibrance of the Californian style chose bold wooden furniture which is painted in fresh colours and mix with tin tea lights, large square cushions and accessories which hint at an outdoor comfortable lifestyle.

In creating the Californian garden, I wanted to evoke the style and energy of the great sun kissed gardens of the 1970's in America.

The paving

The mid-century Californian garden is glamorous in style. Family or friend entertaining is frequently enjoyed so rich textures and bold lines are a must for paved areas. I have chosen Natural Sandstone for the large patio areas as it offers just that. This uniquely stylish sandstone paving with its distinctive grooved pattern lends a light, ultra modern look to the garden design.
