West End, Edinburgh

Small Garden

Something stylish was what the owners of this garden wanted and their own creative vision allowed them to imagine what it might look like once 64 tonnes of subsoil had been removed over the wall into a skip in an adjacent car park.

The garden is formed from white Portuguese limestone, and is focused on a white limestone ball water feature that was lowered into the garden by a crane. Planting includes clipped box pyramids and the purple Japanese maple Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'.
