Large Family Garden

A strong simple layout for a young family in new contemporary house, Radlett, Hertfordshire.

Two large central rooms of lawn centre on a magnificent mature copper beech tree and are flanked by a series of bold perennial plant beds divided by clipped sweeping Portuguese laurel hedge walls green ivy backdrops and box clouds.

The planting style becomes more formal towards the house and the sawn sandstone treatment of the entertainment terrace with a specimen ironwood “sun-brella” roof tree creates a soft focus from the internal living area.
