PortfolioNew Build House with Garden
The Garden Design for this New Build House and Garden needed to have different areas to be enjoyed by everyone: for Lucy and Tony after a hard days work, their grown up children and friends when visiting, any potential grandchildren and for elderly relatives to enjoy with ease.
The Garden Before
The garden was terraced to create a lower level entertaining area for family and friends, with a sunny lawn for the children to play on. The upper level has the ‘all important’ swing seat and a seating area next to the house to enjoy the last of the evening sun or to watch it setting over the hills beyond.
The Planting needed to enhance the beautiful views in the distance by disguising the fence; this has been done with shrubs and trees to blend into the countryside beyond. Also this had to be a wildlife friendly garden so the plants needed to provide all year round berries for food, dense structures for shade and scent to attract insects. A gap in the fence has been created to allow any visiting hedgehogs to pass through on their way to the neighbours…
“A massive thank you for agreeing to be our designer and coming up with plan that has resulted in our perfect garden.
The garden looks so much bigger, the sun seems to reach more corners than before, we have retained the view and gained the wildlife. Day two and we’ve had wrens and butterflies, not previously seen visiting: We will treasure it.”
