Edinburgh Garden, Blackford Hill


This garden was re-designed as the clients renovated their entire house and added a large extension to the rear.  The house was totally modernised and the finishes were contemporary and sleek.  The garden needed to reflect this and provide a year round display of crisp structure and interest to view through the large glass kitchen windows.

A sunken terrace catches the midday sun and a gravel pathway with randomly dotted clipped box plants adds a playful quirkiness to the scheme.  Yew columns have been planted along the wall to create framed planting beds and soft planting will spill over onto the pathway as the garden matures.

The overall effect serves as a reminder that when it comes to garden design Scotland offers a wealth of possibilities.
