A rural location with a spectacular view and a discerning client, requiring bold, dramatic planting to link to the landscape
Mass planted drifts of grasses and flowering perennials set the view with the amazing backdrop of the Surrey Hills beyond.
Rae chooses planters and furniture to fit the space and the lifestyle of the client. Urbis pots and modular furniture feature in the courtyard space
Large perennial drifts run from the landscape and into the living space round the buildings
Rae Wilkinson uses structural evergreen planting through hard landscaping features such as the rill. A tinted window sited at the rill end reflects the landscape beyond, thus bringing it into the space
Combined water features create a sense of place - the rill here is flanked by statuesque water bowls chosen from the Urbis range
