Sutton Garden

 

A modern bungalow set in a small courtyard, the brief was to create a calm meditative space with water, sculptural planting and privacy.

We chose a dark solid stain for the timber fences to contrast with oatmeal granite paving set in a soldier pattern. Three pots form the water feature, set in front of a low lime plastered wall with tree spouts made from painted gun barrel.

The water is recycled through a sump below the pots and treated with an ultra violet filter to prevent algae forming.

Pleached Lime trees provide privacy with golden Bamboo forming a backdrop to the main terrace.
