Rustic Meets Contemporary

A recently renovated house with rustic and contemporary features, the clients wanted the garden to match. The space posed its own challenges being a very irregular shape. New patios, walls and terraces introduced structure whilst planting brought the space to life. Material choices played key role in the design with sawn plank sandstone paving contrasting with rustic local stone walls and granite setts.
