Wimbledon courtyard with sandstone paving
The walled garden is paved throughout with beige Indian Sandstone.
To create a greater sense of space and light, opening up the garden to fully use the area for outdoor living and to provide interesting views from the house all year round. Strong emphasis is placed on planting to attract wildlife and to reflect the changing seasons.
A curved raised planter with integral oak bench forms the key structural feature of the design. This leads to generous planted borders. Water is an important element in this garden. Bringing in light, movement and sound, water pours from a stainless steel chute into a pebble pool. A sandstone bowl is filled with water that gently cascades down the sides.
