If minimal is more your thing, take inspiration from Naomi Ferrett-Cohen’s stunning design. Simple but beautiful, this garden inspired by the mantra of freedom, uses one palette of plants which is repeated around the grounds. Green is the main colour, but splashes of purple can be seen which promote a warm and homely feel.

Go Bold

A bold statement piece will bring style to any garden, just like this gold medal winner designed by Tony Woods. Opting for a slightly darker but rich colour scheme will bring real character to your outdoor space. Sectioning your garden with an archway will also create the illusion of more space and invent a secluded area to relax and unwind.
