Sanctuary in the City

This small town garden has been designed by Sam Jarvis who is passionate about exotic plants which fill the 9m x 12m (approx) space, their dramatic out-sized foliages, hot colours and strong silhouettes etched against a setting sun, whatever the season.

Vivid evergreens such as the tall Trachycarpus palm, Australian tree fern, huge-leaved rice paper plant, loquat tree or cordyline lord it over dwarf fan palms, brightly coloured coleus, cannas and agapanthus. A terrace immediately abutting a modern kitchen extension is separated from the main garden by an arch and low fence smothered in fragrant star jasmine. Unusually, Sam has opted for black paint on the fences to provide a backdrop that shows off the architectural planting at its best. The central area is laid with a circular path of a composite flooring material that encloses a bed planted with colourful crocosmias and lilies. Tucked away in the furthest corner is Sam's potting shed which overlooks a small circular still pool.
