An accent of reclaimed Italian terracotta tiles, swathes of soft perennials and a cobalt blue plunge pool combine to create this beautiful private sanctuary in Queens Park.

With the design of this pool and enveloping garden, we wanted to evoke the natural environment and serenity of a pond. Our goal was to create a pool that felt like it lived in its surroundings and was beautiful to look at, even during the cold winter months when it wouldn’t be in use. This seemingly simple pool is quite the construction achievement though, with the wall of the planter box and the raised seating platform behind it being created from a single, continuous block of polished concrete, poured in situ.

A carpet of Stachys byzantina ‘Moonlight Velvet’ (Lamb’s Ears), Nepeta ‘Walker’s Blue’ and sculpted balls of Buxus microphylla japonica (Japanese Box) fill the garden beds separating lawn and swimming pool, providing screening of the boundary fence and bringing beauty to what was previously a dark and overgrown space.

Beckoning across the lawn, this inspiring design provides a lush, inviting retreat all year round.
