This terrace shows what can be achieved with just one call-out for "Design and Planting Advice".

 

The terrace was windy so the trellising with wind-break fabric was suggested.  We wanted to emphasis the dramatic, industrial building in the background, so the terracota frieze on that building was duplicated with the terracota planters.  This makes ones eyes look from the planters, up and out, thereby making one take notice of the background and making the garden feel larger.

 

Grasses were suggested to soften the hard, industrial lines, and also as a soothing sound to hear when the wind ruffles them.
