The Garden Design Project – In Detail

Project challenges

Core to the success of this project was achieving the separations in space that our client was seeking. A further consideration was the choice of colour scheme; given the contemporary feel of the property, this was to be more muted, rather than vibrant, allowing for the property and garden features to take centre stage.

Project Approach and Contemporary Garden Design Solution

Seating was featured in the basement area of the garden, as well as under a timber pergola located in a private corner of the garden. We also created an intimate seating space in a small shady area beneath a tree, with a tree bench surrounded by shade tolerant planting that could flourish throughout the year.

To complement the contemporary garden and property, the colour scheme was predominantly white and green, using birch trees and conical shaped hornbeam hedging.
