Artemisia Powis Castle
Clematis Mme Le Coultre
It was decided to build on this, to let more light in, so as to create an impression of more space and volume. A raised terrace, sheltered by a homemade arbour trellised with a vine of white grapes (Golden Chasselas), on one level with the house and overlooking the garden, while enjoying the view of the pond built into the terrace. A Japanese maple (Acer palmatum “senkaki”), the Belgian bluestone pavers and the pleached beeches (Fagus sylvatica) on the periphery evoke the Flemish gardens.
A circle of red bricks, with a lawn area in the middle, allows to place one or two deckchairs as close as possible to the perennial beds.
This garden is a small natural shelter for biodiversity. Numerous flowers grow there, roses, hydrangeas, as well as many perennials.
The grey-foliaged medicinal plants harmonise with the blue/grey colour of the terrace paving stones. The interplay of nuances between the materials and the plants contributes to the overall coherence.
“Creating privacy in a garden can be done while maintaining a beautiful space, it’s a matter of space allocation.”
Some tree species can be pleached. This special implementation has the great advantage of taking up little space while ensuring effective visual partitioning.
A garden shed
Beyond its storage function, a garden shed can become a decorative feature. Well placed, painted or natural, it can bring a real added value to the garden space.
A pond nestles in the terrace and gives the place a certain charm in which flora and fauna play their part. To find out more about our methodology, go to the page Skills.
