Sunken chill out garden


Client brief:

Create a garden that gives us space to be outside comfortably with low maintenance planting. To help clients visualise the garden design several animated models were created.

Design response:

Adding the unique porcelain mosaic ‘Botanic’ tiles, not only creates a lovely detail and material change, but works in harmony with Global Stone’s Siena range ‘Gerusalem’ porcelain and brings colour interest that Is picked up on in the plant palette. The planting scheme includes blue grasses and dogwoods for their lovely coloured stems in the winter. Cool blues combine beautifuly with orange tones and vivid purple, provided by the long flowering Salvia ‘Blue Note’, also great for pollinating insects.

Perennial grasses:

Carex testacia ‘Prairie Fire’
Festucia glauca ‘Elijah Blue’
Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Hameln’
Stipa tenuissima ‘Pony Tails’
