The south of France is such a wonderful location to design outdoor spaces, and this particular client was renovating the house at the same time as we were commissioned to re-design the approach to the house which at the time was very confusing. The revised route is via a new driveway and path to the front door, running over a rectangular pool of water, lined in the same grey tiles which we later used for the swimming pool. We also helped to with the position and design of the swimming pool, the choice of tiles, the paved areas around the pool, the addition of new terraces and a complete new garden planting scheme. We also suggested the colour of paint for the house walls, door and window frame colours to tie in with our overall vision. The garden was planted in a contemporary way, with all the varieties of plants being planted in parallel rows, and on a grid, this gave the garden a strong structure.
