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.
