The client, Dr. Susan Elton, is an avid gardener, and wished for a cheerful cottage garden which also reflects her love of Zen gardens. The design draws strong lines from the house. A central lawn, cheerful herbaceous borders, and summerhouse are all united with calm, peaceful areas by the linear layout and repeated planting. Japanese Maples and other shrubs already on the site dovetail into the whole.

The front garden was made welcoming with planting and a Rose covered pergola. River gravel replaced the patchy grass to add to the tranquil Zen feel of the space.
