Coastal Garden

Normally with coastal gardens you think of a sunny aspect with light sandy soil to plant in. This garden was north facing, with heavy soil and views which needed to be kept clear for our clients and their neighbours, so no shelter belt could be planted. A large lawn with sweeping curves and deep borders of tough but attractive shrubs, perennials and grasses were planted and have proven to be a huge success.

Family Garden

The original garden was mainly laid to lawn with a large pond and lots of pine trees. Our brief was to create a garden that the whole family could enjoy, with areas for entertaining, a safe play area for the grandchildren, and a water feature to break up the large patio. Overall the scheme was to look good at all times and to be as low maintenance as possible.

Sloping Garden

This mature and well- tended garden had problems with heavy clay soil, a sloping and wear worn lawn and nowhere to sit in the areas that caught the sun. The design replaced the grass with curving steps and positioned new patios in choice sunny areas. A new planting scheme of suitable flowering shrubs and perennials has been added to the existing backbone of mature trees and shrubs. The result is a garden which is interesting and attractive at all different times of the year as well as being a lot easier to maintain.
