A three level water feature hides the garden utilities, while custom built in bench seating and furniture, built in BBQ, raised planter boxes and screening bamboo planting provide the aesthetics and functionality // COS Design

The old design principle of keeping formal elements of the garden close to the house while the more natural and informal planting schemes are furthest away is one that works in any garden, no matter how big or small. The clipped knot garden at the entrance is typical of the sort of formal feature that can be used to achieve an orderly yet picturesque effect. Design your own knot pattern based on a motif in a carpet or other décor feature.

This design keeps formal elements of the garden close to the house with the more natural and informal planting schemes furthest away
