East Meon, Hampshire, Country Garden | Natural Pool
This exquisite courtyard style garden design in East Meon, Hampshire, is a pitch perfect exemplary example of entwining contemporary and classical aesthetics. Set in a wider country estate, the quiet, subtleness of the space, secluded by structured hedges, is the image of nature standing still for a moment. This is truly a space in which to escape.
The centrepiece of the design, the natural swimming pool employs stratum of exquisite natural materials whose modern linear lines slot into meticulously composed geometric classical planting. The natural pools lines rise up into layered decking and stone paved floors, that then rise up again into layers of Box hedges.
Natural stones laid on the pool floor deepen the space and harmonise with the hues of the water. A natural filtrated volcanic filter bed sits alongside the pool cleaning and clearing the water to the main water body, a ribbon of pebbles and reeds. The pool is edged in honed natural sandstone to maintain the concentric clean lines and leads into the rich luxurious hardwood decking, handcrafted and laid with precision and passion. The warm hues of the hardwood complements the greens of the flora, and sustains the saturated, sumptuous, and soothing colour palette.
