8. Water Feature

Including a custom water feature like fountains or a pond to establish a mesmerising focal point. The gentle sound of water promotes a serene environment, aiding in relaxation and stress relief while acting as a natural humidifier and inviting wildlife into your garden. If you have the space, anchor your garden with a heated pool design.

9. Sculptural Elements

Commissioning sculptures for a luxury garden elevates the aesthetic appeal and adds a touch of personalised elegance to an outdoor space. Such sculptures serve as focal points that attract the eye, spark conversation and imbue the garden with a sense of personal significance.
