With such a large descent between the main areas of the garden, the key to the design was in connecting the two with a generous set of steps that have become the main feature of the garden enjoyed from the large picture window of the house. A new kitchen garden has been built on a number of levels, perfectly integrated with the main steps. An uninspiring lawn on the upper level has evolved into a mass planting of billowing perennials and grasses creating a stunning sea of texture and colour to be enjoyed when sitting on the upper terrace.
