The clients requested a cottage style garden with easy to manage plants, a low maintenance gravelled area and a summerhouse constructed to relax in and to enjoy aspects of the garden from.

A pale colour scheme for the planting was requested, contrasted with deep burgundy for dramatic effect, provided by Sambucus nigra Black Lace’ and SedumJose Aubergine.

Natural wooden obelisks trained with perennial and annual sweet peas, Clematis and Solanum laxusAlbum’ were positioned in three of the flower beds, creating height in the planting scheme.

A heavily fragranced herb bed was positioned to the right of the summerhouse – to the left a raised bed constructed from sleepers provides adequate growing space for vegetables and fruit.

An oil fuel tank was obscured by three wooden trellis panels, trained with the reliable, climbing RosaIceberg’.

Old favourite cottage garden plants like Erigeron karvinskianus, Lupinus, Delphiniums are nestled amongst contemporary plants such as Pennisetum alopecuroidesHameln’ and Phlomis italica.

A low growing County Rose hedge divides the cottage garden from the lawn area.

Early Flowering Garden

Early Flowering Garden

West Norwood, South East London

After downsizing their home, the clients requested a romantic and low maintenance garden, displaying abundant interest early and late in the season when the clients are in residence.

The planting is mainly white with pink accents. The garden is abundant with spring and summer flowering bulbs. Many of the plants were chosen to display strong winter interest of dried seed heads and dried flower heads. The raised beds give easy access to gardening and compliment the Outdoor Office.

Various white climbers and roses were trained on the fencing. Light coloured Sandstone was chosen for the patio area, providing a generous and elegant entertaining space for family events. The dining area also features ambient lighting.

Honeystone chippings were used intermittently softening and complimenting the Sandstone Paving.

Two smaller seating areas close to the home office and house, provide unique viewing aspects of the garden.

Ambient lighting is installed throughout the garden.

Low Maintenance Front Garden

Front Garden & Drive

West Norwood, South East London

The emphisis of the brief for this SuDS compliant front garden was  practicality – housing a parking area and plenty of space for storage and recycling.

Light and soft colours reflect the theme of the house. Dove Limestone Gravel compliments the charcoal colour of the permeable pavers used for the new path as well and edging.

The pathway leading to the front door is edged with a Lavandula angustifoliaMunstead hedge providing a strong aesthetic and a substantial source of nectar for local bees.

Pittosporum tenuifolium Silver Queen’ hedges soften the views dividing the parking space and house.

The existing cherry tree was replaced with a PrunusKursar’, displaying resplendent double pink cherry blossom during the spring period.

Over time the side fences will be coated with pink blooms of Rosa glauca (sunlit area), and with the white flower heads of Hydrangea seemannii (shaded area).

This lightly planted garden displays all year interest, requiring low-maintenance throughout the year, in-line with the client’s request.

The client was in need of a new garden design after the building of a house extension.

The brief was for a low maintenance garden populated by a large volume of plants displaying all year interest with no lawn and a play area with a slide, swings and soft play mat for their children to utilise.

The garden displays flower beds formed with elegant sweeping curved lines, planted with a lush variety of grasses, perennials, bulbs and fruit trees, a selection of fragrant climbers is trained on the on the boundary fencing. Dark slate chippings, with interspersed stepping stones, were used for ground cover. The chippings offer an elegant contrast to the pink and white planting palette – the stepping stones provide a perfect match to the patio area.

A small space for growing edibles was also requested – this was achieved by constructing a raised bed, planted with a selection of herbs and fruit including mint, raspberries and strawberries, It has since been a great success with the client’s daughters.

A play area positioned at the rear of the garden with a slide, swings and soft playmats. A row of Miscanthus sinensisGracillimus’ is used to divide the play area from the main garden.

Urban Exotic Garden

Urban Exotic Garden

Streatham, South West London

The brief for this garden design was to create a stylish entertaining space displaying exotic and architectural planting. Strong masculine materials were chosen for the hard landscaping, black decking and grey concrete slabs provide an effective contrast to the lush planting.

To the left of the garden, a bog bed housing a substantial Gunnera manicata was constructed with recycled railway sleepers.

To the rear of the garden, a wall of red stemmed bamboo Fragesia Jiuzhaigou’ was planted, with integrated mood lighting. The bamboo also serves as an effective noise barrier from the nearby railway.

To the right of the garden, the planting verges on the Mediterranean with many silver/grey leaved plants offset by burgundy leaved shrubs and perennials.

The dining area flower bed was planted up with the client’s favourite herbs, nestled amongst Euphorbia’s and Hydrangeas, releasing invigorating fragrances on summer days.

As this garden provides a space for day and night entertainment, mood lighting was installed throughout, adding a dramatic effect to tree and leaf forms.
