“Richard Neville and Mark Read of Natural Habitats took on the challenge of creating a harmonious landscape, something that hadn’t been considered when the house was designed. The design duo were limited in the amount of hard paving they could use because of council rules about having enough permeable area to allow water to soak in. But that wasn’t a problem, as the garden design needed to soften the lines of the house. Richard describes the style of the resulting garden as contemporary Asian. “The colours and linear nature of the house meant we could provide big green spaces with a flat, green carpet that is characteristic of Asian-style gardens.” Everyone has their own favourite spot in this oasis.”
