Contemporary Design of Garden Patio in Brighton

/, Geometric Shapes, Transformations/Contemporary Design of Garden Patio in Brighton

My clients wanted to make their garden feel more accessible from the kitchen having put in beautiful floor to ceiling sliding doors.

The first thing I did was to choose a porcelain tile with a weathered oak affect. I decided on a slightly larger tile to create both a seamless effect as well as indicating it was a change to an outdoor space.

We also raised the level of the patio so now my clients can walk straight out into the outdoors without stepping down. It is surprising what a difference this makes.

We clad the raised planters with Cedar wood which, if a client is diligent with varnish, will keep its deeper red colour. We paralleled this process with horizontal trellis along the two fences.

Herbs and roses adorn the raised planters and there is still a generous opening to the lawn to allow  adults and especially children to flow out into the rest of the garden.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
