Contemporary garden Designer Alan Smith presented this pretty garden at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The wooden deck has just enough room for the metal table and chairs, and plants in a raised bed provide a great eye-level backdrop. The trellis, painted the same colour as the wall behind, is an original feature, while the gravel patch is turned into focal point with a series of mirrored tiles set into it. The tranquil look is finished with calm shades of green, silver and white.
