Renaissance Gardens Design By Paul Hervey-Brooks

RENAISSANCE
Garden

BY PAUL HERVEY-BROOKES

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

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.

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.

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 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.

PLANTS &
ACCESSORIES

This garden is designed to be a formal retreat, ideal to entertain friends or just relax with a good book. The low clipped hedges keep the garden looking goodyear round and a wealth of flowering plants really createsthat summer haven. Be sure to be almost carefree about your planting to evoke the naturalistic feel which will contrast the elegant paving so well.

Accessories

Hanging lanterns and wall sconces add a sense of romantic Renaissance opulence to terraced areas.

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.

Planting

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