Description of Garden:
This contemporary garden combines earthy natural elements and tones with high tech steel structures and splashes of vibrant colour. The conversation pit is an intimate chill zone and an ideal place to hang out.
Warm African colours like red, orange, burgundy and greys are used to give that exciting colour lift to the garden, both in the structural features, as well as, in the drifts of meadow planting.
The focal point is a contemporary water feature which is simple and yet eye-catching. The garden art adds a funky, youthful spark of excitement to the garden. This garden shows us how natural elements can be vividly enhanced by contemporary structures and dazzling colour.
