A contemporary garden
A contemporary west-facing garden in Lockington, East Yorkshire. A garden to complement a newly built, modern, architect-designed home whilst retaining the feel of a more traditional English country garden. We were asked to design a contemporary garden for a newly built, modern, architect-designed home in Lockington, East Yorkshire. The gardens, front and rear, were to reflect the architectural style but to the rear the intention was to retain the feel of a more traditional English country garden.
To the rear the garden enjoyed views to the Yorkshire Wolds so these were opened up and framed with exuberant perennial planting with a long season of interest. A generous patio and rendered, raised planter (with seating around the edge) provides plenty of entertaining and relaxing space.
