Garden of a modernist new build house for a family with two teenagers and a dog. Contemporary planting will give way to naturalistic grasses, as the garden slopes down to fields and panoramic views of rolling Kent countryside.

Dining area to left of property screened with metal pergola; lush planting of ferns, evergreen grasses and woodland perennials
