10 ideas for garden focal points

GARDEN FOCAL POINTS.


When truly engaged in a garden space one is experiencing transition through a series of architectural focal points. Some may be more subtle, some more dramatic and sometimes it is the borrowed landscape framed from within invariably these focal points anchor the space and lead the eye across. One of the commonest ways to deliver a focal point is the positioning of trees and shrubs. Sculpture, water features, planters, furniture, fireplaces and outdoor structures such as arbours, kitchens and outhouses are more personal and dramatic. The architecture of the house, when unique, can form a bold focal point when framed cleverly from within the garden. Working on many roof terraces, for me, framing the ever changing London skyline is one of the greatest joys of interacting with new focal points.
