Contemporary Entertaining Garden, Bristol
A large, modern, family garden with space for relaxing, dining, entertaining and play was created in this dramatic natural rock face location.
The new scheme includes; a swimming pool/dipping pools & outdoor shower, hot tub, sunken fire pit seating area, outdoor kitchen, large seating and dining area along with a slate water wall feature feeding into a rill with floating “island” and feature tree.
Planting includes structural evergreens for shape and interest throughout the seasons, while perennials, ornamental grasses and bulbs introduce colour and texture. An exotic style planting border was also created with bamboo, acers and swathes of Japanese forest grass.
The contemporary design uses a mix of grey porcelain and wood effect porcelain, along with slate clad walls. Composite decking has been used in the sunken fire pit seating area as well as cladding the canopies over the hot tub and outdoor kitchen. Level changes within the main entertaining area add another dimension while garden lighting makes this a great place to entertain and party into the night.
