Renaissance garden

This garden draws on the rich heritage and beauty of the Renaissance gardens of the Italian Riviera.

The concept

These gardens use a wealth of clipped hedging, rich floral borders and elegantly detailed paving and stone to create gardens which are the ultimate luxury entertaining space.

Accessories

Adding classical elements will give a sense of Italian grandeur to the whole garden.

Planting

Be sure to be almost carefree about your planting to evoke the naturalistic feel which will contrast the elegant paving so well.

Furniture

Mix and match odd tables and chairs to give an informal feel which nods its head at the idea of layered history. Creating visual interest with a mix and match approach will make a feature out of garden furniture.

In creating the renaissance garden, I revisited the Renaissance period – a style inspired by classical ideals of order and beauty, and intended for the pleasure of the view of the garden and the landscape beyond.
Paul Hervey-Brookes

The paving

I have used a range of natural products from Bradstone which are at home in either the traditional or modern environment. Smooth Natural Sandstone paving was the perfect choice due to its subtlety.

In this garden it has been used for the main paved areas. You should then use Smooth Natural Sandstone again for the features to really add designer detail to the garden by edging paving bands and contained gravel areas.
