These are the kind of ingredients that I was imagining when I talked about overlooking a Modern Country garden: a blend of romantic roses with neat rows of catmint, combined with formal topiary. These low buxus' (box) are newly planted but will end up as neatly clipped parterre hedges.
|Modern Country garden: Roses and catmint|
The client wanted tranquillity and calm...
|Modern Country Garden: Circular pool and catmint|
...which is provided by both the symmetry and the softly-softly colour palette....gentle pinks and mauves.
|Modern Country Garden: Roses and boxwood parterre|
The balance between the two produces a very Modern Country garden.
