An Urban Sanctuary
“An Urban Sanctuary” designed by Charlie Albone & Inspired Exteriors and constructed by Inspired Exteriors, is a chic city retreat with rounded shrubs complemented by soft, flowering perennials. The calming nature of water is featured throughout the garden to calm the mind & lift the spirit, whilst the use of natural stone gives the hardscape warmth.
We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to contribute to the creation of “An Urban Sanctuary” and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Charlie and the team at Inspired Exteriors. Bush Hammered, one of our most unique finishes, was used throughout the display as the cladding of the 8 columns and along the lower feature wall.
One of the reasons Bush Hammered is such a unique finish is because of the contrast it creates between the dark shadows of the natural vesicles (air bubbles, cats’ paw) in the stone and its own white flecked surface. The heavily vesiculated Landscape Grade Bluestone was selected for this very reason, to ensure that this stunning contrast effect was a predominant feature throughout the stone and the final result was magnificent.
“An Urban Sanctuary” received a Bronze Show Garden award.
