Project 1: Inverleith Garden

Before and after images to the garden. Please click on to enlarge.

The clients sought ideas to transform their existing paved area into a space to entertain and enjoy summer evenings.
The design proposes two seating areas to capitalise on the sun in the morning and in the afternoon/evening.
A circular seating area is dug into the corner of the curve of the lawn, creating a strong sense of enclosure.
Grasses, lavender and box encircle the seating. A cascade water feature is built into the curved wall engendering a light and peaceful atmosphere.
A second more intimate seating space is situated at the west-facing end of the garden capturing the evening sun. The pergola is planted with roses and jasmine to enjoy warm, scented, summer evenings.
