I was very excited to be asked to produce full garden designs for this Chippenham client. I had completed a garden re-fresh for their previous house and they were happy to give me a free hand in producing a garden full of flower their new home. The requirement was ‘Lots of colour’ and it‘s been a pleasure to develop! The first stage of the garden landscaping was completed by LG Landscapes.
This is a garden design for keen gardeners which will be developed over the next few years. The design produces a strong view from the open plan kitchen and terrace across the lawn surrounded by planting with year-round interest. A winding path then leads through an arch to a sunny seating area surrounded by summer flowers. The path continues to the productive area of raised vegetable beds and trained fruit trees. At the end of the garden is a summer house and wildlife area. The landscaping was completed by Lambridge Landscapes, Bath.
This garden design was for a sloping garden which opened out onto a partly wooded area. The owner wanted a new seating area to catch the evening sun, an extended seating area near the house and an herb garden. The design features a raised walled seating area from which a mown path meanders down the hill then back up to the formal lawn and herb beds next to the L-shaped house. Planting along the fence merges with the semi-wild area beyond, whereas that near the house is formal.
This started as a small project to replant an overgrown area of the garden, but over the course of several years the entire garden has been replanted! Large, heavy shrubs have been replaced with roses and flowers and the difficult area under a tree has been planted with spring flowering plants and bulbs.
The renovation of the house had been completed, and now the owners were looking to create a similarly beautiful garden design filled with roses and tradition cottage garden plants. I produced outline plans for both front and rear garden landscaping which the owners were very pleased with.
I accepted the challenge to create garden landscaping for a holiday home which needed to be seriously low maintenance, drought tolerant and cope with the occasional winter freeze. After just a few months it is already looking beautiful. The garden design includes evergreen plants which flower for many months of the year so the garden is always looking good.
