Clean cut greys, sharp lines and sparkly granite chippings – creating a beautiful outside space with a distinctively chic, modern feel has never been so easy; especially with our bespoke palette of colours.

White and green is a good base for your colour scheme. For instance, use pale toned paving to create elegant paths or a chic patio area.
Paint any rendered or brick walling and fences white. Painted brickwork lends an extra element of texture to the design.
Use repeat patterns in your planting to hold the garden together. Create contrast between the simple geometric shapes of lawns and paths and include some loose, blousy planting spilling out of the flowerbeds.
In among the billowing planting include a pattern of structural plants such as box balls. Contemporary planting tends to have a ‘glue’ plant, one that's in every border and lasts a long time through the summer.
Modern designs are fairly pared back, so it's best to avoid fads. Have a clear reason for everything you include.
Lighting is absolutely essential for contemporary gardens – good lighting is always about what you light, rather than the lighting fixture.
