This minimalist garden is a perfect low maintenance solution for a growing family that enjoys lawn sports.
It is classical enough with it's double hedge of box and yew, pleached holly, and has sophistication in spades for adults to enjoy as well.
A parasol tree and tree ferns surround a frog pond,—a small oasis partially hidden by a corten steel fin and stone on end. Pebble mosaic stepping stones appear to float over the water and lead onto the lawn. At the far end of the garden a pebble filled gabion wall disguises a concrete boundary. A 2m high fountain agitates the water in the pool causing ripples that reflect back onto the wall in sunlight.
