46. Round and round the garden… London, UK
2. Circle of life This garden area, created by London-based landscape designer KR Garden Design, has plenty of greenery around the focal point, which brings calming vibes to a traditional design. Again, a small space has been transformed into a private area perfect for outdoor living, which shows how you can:Choose a single colour theme using plants such as white hydrangeas. Contain flowers and greenery with low garden walls to emphasise the design symmetry.Add pots with leafy plants, carefully manicured to mark out the entry to the area.Trim trees to outline the gate without crowding the access.
6. Circle the squareGarden framing doesn’t have to be square or rectangular. In this outside space, a low circular wall softens the edges, disguises ugly corners and creates a focal point for the table and chairs. Even in a smaller garden, a curved border can help define different areas, and provide a home for built-in beds.For a rustic, vintage feel, use reclaimed bricks in your wall – head to your local salvage yard, talk to a friendly builders’ merchants or buy some on eBay.
