We created this colourful, ‘secret’ exotic retreat at the bottom of a very large back garden. It was in a sunny place, almost completely hidden by a lovely array of mature shrubs. Unfortunately, the wonderfully peaceful spot was being used to pile up and burn debris. We were excited about its potential and suggested we transform it into an area that would lure and surprise visitors. Approaching it, tall vibrant flowers can be partially spied and, curious, visitors are enticed into the first circle edged with lovely reclaimed bricks and full of colourful plants and blooms.
Who could resist entering the inner circle to sit, unobserved, under the pergola with its fragrant climbers? Our client loved relaxing here, private and peaceful, admiring the gorgeous plants and the song of the birds. Often, when he was entertaining, he would enjoy hearing the whoops of delight when his guests discovered this lovely retreat.
