Naturally Inspired Gardens

Garden design inspired by nature

Edinburgh East

A suburban back garden to the east of Edinburgh.

Designing the garden using the diagonal axis of the property made the garden feel larger and took the focus of the garden away from the neighbouring properties. Raised beds were incorporated to provide vertical interest and to divide the garden, and these were planted with ornamental grasses to provide enclosure, a dynamic sense of movement and a counterbalance to the strong geometric lines. Sandstone terraces close to the house and to the rear of the garden allowed the garden to be used for dining and entertaining at all times of the day and a small, formal pool was included to add movement and reflection from the water.
