Geometry is right at the heart of Dinnick?s design principles. The serpentine borders in the front and back garden use the same radius, which is then repeated in the parterre. This creates a flow from the front garden to the back and ?helps to give the garden structure,? Dinnick says. ?The rounded shapes also make it seem more expansive. They were quite a challenge to do. We took every dimension, measuring the semi-circles from the fence, and my guys were here all day as I stood on the balcony and kept them moving things around for hours to get the geometry right.?
Curved borders make the narrow plot seem wider, while the parterre and cleverly disguised garage become the major focal points.
