An Italian Inspired Garden

Our client wanted a garden inspired by classic Italian gardens, preferring white-flowering plants.

The main feature was the creation of a new terrace outside the pool house with an outdoor fireplace, adding a simple pergola with a cedar louvered canopy.

The overall garden design created a generous border with a geometric design, creating a meandering path through the planting, with

  • topiary to bring height and structure to the garden and all-year interest
  • a simple planting palette, using whites along with dark plum/purple foliage and fresh lime greens
  • a mix of grasses for further winter interest – combined with box balls for structure and columnar cypress trees for the Italian look
  • beech pleached hedging to divide the garden into separate zones
  • large metal planters bringing blocks of colour into the lower part of the garden
  • a modern statement water feature to give both a focal point and to add the gentle sound of water to the new seating areas
