Developed over time, this large garden embraced its art-deco heritage and built on its location by a stream with existing mature trees and shrubs. The heavy soils allowed for Rhododendrons and other shade loving plants. Existing entry spaces and building surrounds benefitted from new paths and complementary planting to provide colour and year-round horticultural interest. A garden cottage with raised vegetable gardens was built around existing trees to maintain privacy and the lushness of the site.
Garden pots, sculpture, clipped hedging and a water feature were incorporated as part of a new loggia space with reshaped lawn environment.
