Stevenage is a country garden with its heart in the town. The sleek space combines topiary plants and pleached trees for form and structure, complimented by softer plants adding subtle hints of purple and gold to the colour scheme. All season planting has been implemented as the garden is in use all year round. Newly sawn York-stone, traditional flint gravel and a lead water feature testify to the age of the property whilst maintaining a contemporary feel throughout. A sunken dining area leads off from the main terrace and provides a private area to eat and socialise while the outdoor lighting scheme has been kept intentionally sparse so as to provide scope to add candle light to the mix for an ambient lighting design.
