River Garden, Hertfordshire
The River Garden is a modern courtyard garden in a dramatic setting.
The client’s brief was to make the most of this beautiful location next to a small river. The geometric design, with an emphasis on horizontals, maximises the width of the garden and helps frame the view. The lower terrace is reminiscent of a jetty, cantilevered over the water and wrapping around the tree. The curved seating offers a late afternoon spot to sit and watch the world – and the local wildlife – drift by. Winner of the SGD 2014 Pocket Garden Award and principal winner Design Excellence under 50K BALI Awards 2015.
