The Buddhist Mandala symbol inspired this series of interlocking circles which form the basis of this square back garden.
We removed all the plants and put them in pots which I took home to look after while the landscapers moved in.
A shady corner has a mini-stumpery with ferns and Hostas amongst others while the rest of the garden gets plenty of sun and the colourful planting reflects that. Several climbers already on the fence were pruned and tied onto their supporting wires and a pair of mirrors have been fixed to the fence to extend the view of the paths and planting.
A curved line of box shapes and stone globe lights were placed near an existing circular paved area. The lights are made of a resin material which looks just like sandstone during the day but they light up like little moons in the dark.
The owner is a Buddhist and wanted a Buddha statue in the scheme somewhere. He sits at the end of a tiled path in a raised bed with a circular mirror on a fence in front and is surrounded by lush planting and wavy grasses.
