Project Description

reflective pool

The owners of this rural smiddy wanted to make the most of the stunning views from their living room window and patio. They looked out over the East Lothian countryside, but the current view was blocked by their cars which were parked on the gravel driveway. I designed a beautiful new garden ‘room’ full of soft grasses and natural planting by shortening the driveway and screening this with hedging. I created a reflective pool to enhance the beautiful East Lothian evening skies.


The owners now enjoy their morning coffee and croissants round the side of the house in their new sunny, secluded kitchen garden ‘room’, surrounded by fragrant roses and herbs. They also love being able to grab a handful of fresh herbs and have space to grow a few vegetables to throw in the cooking pot for a tasty supper.
