Design

Below are a few examples of private gardens that we have designed in consultation with our clients.  We have  constructed these gardens with trusted contractors or they will be constructed at a future date. We hope this gives you a flavour of our thinking and the scope of our capability.

Hook Norton

Private client in Hook Norton.  The curved boundary wall was existing led to the design of the circular lawns edged with blue/black bricks and an elliptical terrace with bespoke, in-house designed, oak pergola for Clematis and Rose climbers.

Plant Information Lists

For each garden design we provide a detailed Plant Information List to help the client get a good idea of plant colours, sizes, forms and flowering season.  An example of the list for Hook Norton can be downloaded

Epwell

Traditional village cottage with a very sunny south west facing front garden.   The garden is full of very mature shrubs that have outgrown their positions.  The design brief was to re-design the garden with softer, more drought tolerant planting that will enjoy the sunny aspect with minimal need for watering.

The existing mature garden with large evergreen shrubs awaiting construction:

The design for Epwell including removal of many of the overgrown evergreen shrubs, soil replenishment and replanting but keeping the existing climbers on the house walls.

Small Front Garden on a New Estate

Always a challenge to make good the buried rubble of a new builds garden.  In this case, a corner plot, small front garden with nothing in it apart from an unwanted lawn.
