Project Overview

A taste of the country in town  
 

This town garden was transformed from a traditional lawn area edged by borders to a diverse and interesting garden with plenty to look at all year round.

The wish list

The brief was wide-ranging, which gave me lots of scope to change the existing layout:

  • Colourful planting
  • Room for entertaining
  • Year-round interest
  • Creating a new view from the house

The magic wand

I created a change in levels in the garden, with raised borders and a central planting area which is the focal point of the garden. A soft, creamy Purbeck random stone was used to edge the new borders, and curved paths created a journey to a large, curved patio surrounded by curved-top trellis, which is perfect for entertaining. The planting and design brings texture, detail and interest to what was a very standard outdoor space.

The response

“You have given me a beautiful garden and made my garden bigger!”
