Garden Design Portfolio
This secluded garden was opened out to great a tranquil space to enjoy and relax in. By creating the garden on a 45 degree angle it was possible bring back into the garden an area which appeared cut off by an extension and the focal point became a seating area and Japanese Maple instead of the shed.
A generous family garden in need of a refresh. Sweeping paths were added and a large deck to enjoy summer dinner outdoors. Recently finished the planting will take time to mature and strategically placed trees will provide screening.
With the theme 'Dixter Inspired Border' the border is inspired by the exuberant planting of the late Christopher Lloyd’s garden at Great Dixter in Sussex.
Dixter perfectly exemplifies the Beautiful Borders theme of ‘Flower Power’ showing the freedom and fun of the ever-evolving planting used in the garden. The plants have been chosen to provide exciting and creative colour combinations which are also beneficial to wildlife. The handmade chestnut hurdles showcase traditional craftsmanship.
A steeply sloping front garden has been terraced to maximise the amount of space. The planting has been designed to deal with the difficult conditions under the shade of multiple trees .
This family garden was dominated by a dilapidated pool. The garden was given a major makeover incorporating a large patio area suitable for large family gatherings as well as a more intimate seating area in the summer house. The planting carefully screens neighbouring housing whilst also providing year round interest.
