Water Features in Garden Design
Water features have been popular in garden design for centuries. Water is essential to life, and plants. It might be for this reason that being close to water has been scientifically proven to be calming, stress-reducing, and health improving.
Town Gardens. Small is Beautiful.
The perfect town garden for me would be a space of green calm with different ‘rooms’ for entertaining and relaxing. A small seating space with a comfortable and stylish outdoor lounge in which I could unwind, surrounded by small trees for screening and lush under-planting. The sound of a water feature would help mask the urban background noise and subtle uplighting amongst the plants, plus dappled lighting in trees would make the space usable through into the evening.
