Contemporary Garden
With Rill and Pool

The garden before

Before
The clients were adding an extension to the rear of the house and wanted a contemporary garden with water to create an outdoor room with a relaxing place to sit and read the Sunday papers.

The Rill and Pool

The dining area opens up onto a ‘balcony’ of Western Red Cedar and the view from here is directed past box cubes to a Western Red Cedar horizontal trellis panel which will act as a backdrop to a garden sculpture.

“My approach to the design was to create pool and rill in line with a Western Red Cedar to run across the garden space. A granite sphere was positioned in the pool to look as though it were floating.

 
Plan of the Garden  
   

“We were really impressed with the design service offered by Jayne.

Jayne was able to take our initial brief and translate this into a stunning contemporary design that really made the most of the small space we had and provided a great backdrop to our new kitchen extension. The combination of hard landscaping and planting have completely transformed the garden.

Over several meetings she was able to communicate the concepts and hone the design and even sample materials. She then recommended and then liaised with the landscaper to ensure the implementation went to plan before completing the final planting.”
