Contemporary front garden

A contemporary, light welcome to this large Victorian house was of prime importance to the owners. A traditional look with a modern twist of informality was achieved with large dark slate slabs laid in proportion to the front aspect of the house. These were patterned together with gravel and interspersed with planting in a variety of shades of green and white, producing a calming and fresh entrance to their home. The scheme is low maintenance, as stressed in the brief, and also provides a home for the wheelie-bin!
