Surface design in contemporary gardens

CONTEMPORARY GARDEN SURFACE DESIGN.


Detailing surfaces is one of my favourite aspects of garden design. Paving, decking, gravel, walkways and steps form the most abundant areas of urban garden space and as such provide much scope for character. I like to use sandstone, granite, slate and limestone in various finishes as well as balau, ipe, iroko and cedar woods. Aggregates can really enhance a garden when using different scales and colours of pebbles, cobbles and boulders. Combining all these materials to divide the space can be done simply to give a dynamic which is unique to each space and stimulate visually. Most importantly surface design forms the backbone of a solid design to lead one through the spatial experience.
