“At the front of the garden an informal group of white-stemmed birch trees creates a degree of enclosure, giving way to a more open glade in front of the terrace,” explains Robert, who carefully chose these trees for the dappled shade their foliage creates. “The stunning white bark is set against the dark background to reinforce the monochrome effect,” he adds.
