The ‘Contemporary contemplation’ garden, designed by OneAbode Ltd, is a contemporary and stylish garden featuring structural planting with a graphic formation of spectacular white flowering Agapanthus. Ferns drift whimsically through a bold graphic layout of box topiary balls.

The simplicity of the landscaping emphasises the elegant lines of the sunken amphitheatre and seating platform, creating a garden which is contemporary yet calm and tranquil. A classic green and white planting pallette enhances the peaceful nature of the garden.

Floating metal steps lead to a single seat nestled within the planting, with a backdrop of striking silver birch trees.

This garden, ‘Our first home, our first garden’ was designed and built with a budget of only £7000. It’s a garden for a young professional couple with little spare cash and knowledge of gardens or plants.

Once again this garden appealed from a planting perspective, but also the effective use of hard landscaping materials. Sustainable reclaimed scaffold boards were used for walls, steps and decking.

Planting included Achillea, Aconitum, Agapanthus, Alchemilla, Eryngium, a variety of Alliums and grasses including Calamagrostis ‘Karl Foerster’ and Deschampsia.

Designer: Nilufer Danis for Landform.
