Garden

BY PAUL HERVEY-BROOKES

Cool and sosphisticated are the words that sum this garden up for me. It is a grown-up place to entertain, cook and relax.

I think there is also flexibility to personalise your space to compliment your home and lifestyle.

THE
CONCEPT

A range of Bradstone product to make the hard landscaping details join the whole scheme together in an elegant fashion. The planting is subtle but holds your eye year round by using a solitary evergreen tree and a cluster of silvery white stemmed birch.

Planting

Partially obscured views and sculptural planting will help bring this feeling to life. Textures are really important and by contrasting Granite and Smooth Sandstone paving I have echoed the glossy and more coarsely texture foliage plants used in the planting.

THE VIDEO

Watch and listen as Paul explains where his inspiration came from and what you need to do to achieve the same look in your very own garden area.

PAVING

I have contrasted the rugged nature of Natural Granite paving with the sleek character of smooth Sandstone. The Natural Granite garden paving is a perfect choice for an ultra-modern terrace area, helping to create a sleek design. I've then used the Sandstone paving to make the main terrace and also to create two stylish riased beds in the garden. The paving is cut into strips to use a modern coping stone which also doubles as an informal perch for visitors to rest upon.

PLANTS &
ACCESSORIES

This garden is inspired by the crisp open spaces that make up galleries. Therefore, textures are really important and by contrasting granite and sandstone paving I have echoed the glossy and more coarsely texture foliage plants used in the planting. I have then used a solitary evergreen tree in contrast with a cluster of silvery white stemmed birch. This combination will provide year round enjoyment and given that the structure of the two types of tree is different they will encourage small birds into the garden.

Border plants

In the Gallery Garden the bulk of the planting is created from evergreen shrubs. This creates waves of solid form providing year round interest and visual colour.

Accessories

To create the modern feel of the Gallery Garden seek out crisp ‘designer’ feeling accessories or fun arty items.

Herbaceous

This garden is much more a statement piece and the use of bold clusters of shrubs will provide a lot of interest; therefore perennials are used in limited quantities.
