The principles executed so beautifully in this garden can be applied to any size space.

  1. Build in a sense of mystery by screening parts of the garden.
  2. Use symmetrical plantings or hardscaping to offset an awkward asymmetrical space.
  3. Frame an object, vignette or vista to create garden ?pictures.?
  4. Use drifts of colour to avoid a confusing polka-dot effect.
  5. Combine plants with contrasting shapes and textures to add dynamism.
  6. Coordinate hardscaping and plants with the house in style and scale.
