Art Garden

An Art Deco inspired garden, with strong geometric patterns in the porcelain paving that pick up on the owners love of all things ‘Mackintosh’. Corten steel screens sectioned off areas for sculptures on plinths and seats. High level trellis increased privacy in this overlooked town garden. A Pizza oven completed the garden as a fun…

Linking Architecture and Garden

New contemporary architecture needed a sleek minimal outside space to complement its’ design. Large format grey slate paving suited the huge window frames, whilst Siberian Larch pathways directed the family to the many seating areas, all lifted by airy planting. Views were enhanced through the house and along the building to the countryside beyond

Generous curves

A design that combated a two metre height change, allowing a gentle stroll across the semi-circular lawn, up a curved flight of steps, through abundant Mediterranean style planting to a sunny seating area. Then on through existing mature Holly trees down a winding path through woodland planting to return to the lower level. We also…

A safe haven

This family garden compliments the new family home with areas for play, growing vegetables, entertaining, lawn and parking, as well as some attractive planting for the adults to enjoy! Elegant steps run along contemporary folding doors giving unbroken access to the garden and view. A linear pattern is being used to add interest to the…

Small London courtyard

Used infrequently, this London pad needed to be very low maintenance and make the most of the small size (just 7m x 7m). Existing level changes had to be incorporated into the design as removing waste was not an option. Overhung by London plane trees, the planting was shade loving, verdant and minimal, leaving room…

Making an entrance

Linking the drive to the front door with a generous dark slate path and front door step, surrounded by subtle planting in shades of greys, purple and white. The twin raised beds were painted to match the front door to tie everything together and create a strong, unified entrance. Ordered lines and ribbons of planting…

Order from Chaos

Pond life was relocated from a derelict rockery pond to a sleek linear pond (via a wheely bin!) and paths were made from copper slate. The driveway was directed to a new dropped curb, with the turning area becoming an integral feature of the design. The low and airy planting was required to keep the…

Oriental Influence

The owner of this newly refurbished home needed a calm place to ‘chill’ in the garden, as well as room for children to play. The back of the house is divided by two dark minimal ‘pergolas’ and oriental inspired screens. They create three separate areas overlooked by three rooms, but are all linked by a…
