Landscaping Brief: To create a tranquil environment for contemplation using a modern garden design.
Project Summary: Before we began, a tiered softwood timber deck at the far end of the garden was in place. However, the clients wanted a more striking garden redesign. We commissioned a stand-alone oak pergola to be the core focal point. By adding in lighting from the joints and placing it on a weathered teak decking this new feature provides the perfect view both from the house and towards the house.
Towards the front of the garden we wanted to focus on making it a more natural space, but ensuring it was easily maintainable. We set about cutting and filling to create borders where plants could be given a unique display.
Before we started work a large tree had been the focus of the borders of the garden, so we removed it and created instead a flowing design using cream slabs to lead the eye to the pergola.
In it’s place we added a mixture of bright perennial plants, including a striking blossom tree and pampas grass that would catch the movement of the wind.
