Roman Garden

Inspired by a garden she had seen on holiday, our client asked us to build a Roman garden incorporating espaliered fruit trees. Our design included marble mosaics based on an original design from Carthage, a Pithos terracotta urn and a travertine Lion’s head water feature. We built a sunken fountain which was fitted with underwater lights and tiled with Italian Bisazza glass tiles, and we cobbled the area with stone and kerbs. We used an orange colour scheme for the planting, contrasting it with cool green foliage from box and euphorbia plants, and of course, the all-important espaliered fruit trees!
