Modern Meandering

Precast concrete slabs were used to form the framework for these garden beds, providing a smoother finish than concrete.

A staggered concrete path and benches create a strong architectural framework for plants and an inviting courtyard effect. The landscape architect — John Lloyd — also played with the grade of the landscape, using flowering shrubs as foundation planting and smaller plants closer to the street. The traditional redbrick house now blends beautifully with the contemporary landscaping.
