    A pool garden in Surrey

  • This family garden designed for a couple and their teenage daughters has a watery landscape at its heart.

    The sloping topography of the site, surrounded by trees and views out over the Surrey countryside set the tone for a naturalistic landscape which would incorporate strong design details and geometry to connect home and garden.

A swimming pool, poolhouse, terrace and firepit area are set in a contemporary and crisp design, surrounded by a naturalistic landscape of rocks, waterfalls, a large pond and a rich full planting palette.
