This client had no preconceived ideas of a particular
style or layout, only requesting that the design incorporated somewhere
suitable for family and friends to eat, along with a less formal relaxing area.
Their fondness of Lake Garda and the Italian style provided the inspiration for
Landscaping and Planting
A formal layout with symmetrical, raised
dividing walls creates two distinct, idyllic eating and relaxing areas. Two
large, square raised planters with olive trees under-planted with petunias sit
either side of a traditional fanned cobbled path, linking the entertaining
areas, giving the garden a real feel of authenticity, whilst the contrasting
black and white colour scheme keeps the design modern.
