Medium Sized Modern Garden

Modern Property Garden

Artscape worked with garden designer Pippa Purnell on building a garden with this modern property in Thame, Oxfordshire.

The family-sized patio is at the heart of the garden. It is spanned by a large pergola that provides both shade and privacy. A raised bed with a water spout is sited next to it meaning water falls gently into the reservoir below.

Steps lead up to a raised path bordered by grasses and perennials, and also give access to the garage door. The path leads to a secluded patio inscribed with a phrase meaningful to the owners. Planting in the garden is low maintenance with evergreen structure and interest throughout the year.

The summerhouse makes a lovely focal point at the end of the garden, and extends its season of use. A variety of seats within the garden means it is possible to enjoy either sun or shade depending on your preference.
