Complex levels, fantastic view of levels – Wells

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

 A town garden currently being constructed and the bungalow being extended, hopefully we will be planting in February or March.

I divided the garden to create a terrace and three different lawn areas, the lawns are set on different levels so as to reduce the effect of the slope.  The main challenge was to contend with the slope whilst retaining privacy from neighbouring properties.

Contemporary topiary – Bath

Monday, June 1st, 2009

This is a project for a client wishing for a low maintenance contemporary garden.  Division of space was achieved using topiary forms, both yew and hornbeam -  yew was trained into shapes inspired by Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures.   Pleached hedges, an oak pergola, a fairy lit arbour, fire pit and an infinity pool were other main features in this garden.

Front garden and parking – Alton

The uneven paving in this garden was lifted and crushed to create the sub base for the hardcore and gravel.  Tall ‘transparent’ planting was used to offer a sense of privacy whilst maintaining a view to the village green.

Contemporary Garden – Alton

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

My client had strong design ideas and was looking for lush planting to create an oasis in this town setting.  Crisp lines, modern materials, bamboos and box were all used to maximum effect.

I have been involved with the maintenance pruning of this garden over the past few years
