An ongoing soft landscaping project we have been working on since 2017. This garden was simply laid to lawn, our clients wanted colour, interest, privacy and a reason to go outside. Bringing in planted beds, green screening, and shaped borders in the rear, and neat, structured planting for the front, mature trees and soft perennial planting mixing grasses with herbaceous and contemporary structural additions have created a wonderful garden to complement their home.
Features: Pleached trees. Perennial planting. Evergreen planting. Soft Landscaping.
A new ground floor living extension to this client’s home required an equally sleek outdoor space hence the choice of a natural coloured polished sandstone pave.
Features: Precision paving. Hard landscaping
Bright zingy planting with big-leaved evergreens, tall bamboo and terrace-style pleached trees created the outdoor living space our heat-loving client envisaged. Containers and hard surfaces with gravel planting and feature rocks provide low maintenance with high impact. The cedar privacy screens and simple additions to the pergola suit the simple modern design.

Full garden redesign on a tired, sloping site. Working with our clients we designed an inviting space with seating areas, eating areas, yoga spot and firepit. The slope was banked up and heavily planted with calming plants in purple, green and white hues. A top spot for secluded seating was reached by curving oak steps with a waterfall running alongside. Hand-weaved hazel panels kept the side access open but secure.
