To access the garden from the house are three natural stepping stones that dissect a raised bed and lead to a pathway through 6mm silver-grey zen gravel. A tall Japanese Acer is positioned in the corner with low evergreen plants such as Ophiopogon nigrescens and dwarf rhododendron Bloombux. The raised bed is edged with silver-grey palisades. On the otherside, a water basin arrangement is positioned in front of the Oriel window. A long horizontal bamboo spout feeds a contemporary basin with water cascading down a short stream. Next to the water feature is a red weeping Japanese Acer, bench seating within the border and another Japanese Acer of a green variety. The green acer is part of a third raised bed which includes a 3 Tenshi standing stone feature with dwarf Rhododendron Bloombux underplanting.

To the right of the pathway is a raised bed with a Carstens Wintergold specimen cloud tree and 60cm Kodai Maru Yukimi granite lantern. All the raised beds are top-dressed with Scottish cobbles.

Along the rear boundary are bespoke wooden fences with Shou Sugi Ban finish. In the center is a pergola, also finished with Shou Sugi Ban and dark grey granite paving. On either side of the pergola are corten planters with tall bamboo.
