Swimming Pool Courtyard Garden

Borden near Sittingbourne.

The travertine paving links the area around the house to the swimming pool and creates a warm environment in which to enjoy the sun and pool. The granite planters are a strong contrast to the white rendered walls while linking in with the door frames and coping. The topiary shapes of box, bay and variegated holly creates strong evergreen features throughout the year and links to the evergreen shapes in other parts of the garden. The lavender is a mass of mauve-blue flowers in the summer and a haven for bees and nectar loving insects.
