Designing your garden space….
…..December please make it a dry and cold month!!! So much rain these last few months, one Design and build job took so much longer than it should, it rained so hard we discovered how wet the garden could get and with 200m2 of paving to be laid, it certainly tested us all. I can only say well done to the team and Christian for managing to keep going and get the work done. Once finished the overall design looked amazing. With a reduced pond, composite decking, raised patio area with new steps down to the new patio and a lovely large dining and entertaining area. There were also some planting pockets, needing to be low maintenance. We can safely say this has been achieved and a big thanks to the clients for having us in the back garden for so long.
Next project is not so big but still important, we have a few smaller designs and I am pleased to say two repeat clients with more design ideas for their gardens, I can only say that’s amazing and we love going back, especially when the gardens are so beautiful anyway, and an excuse in one of them to plant more trees which is very important.
With the Woodland Trust encouraging us all to plant more trees (The Woodland Trust, 2019) I am always please when a client asks for this, especially when it can be big or small, already having planted some lovely specimens, Quercus palustris ‘Green Pillar’, Gingko Biloba ‘Finger’ and Arbutus Lollipop ‘strawberry Tree’ and that’s just a few. We have bigger plans afoot.
This will counteract removing a hedge which we have decided to utilise and create a small stumpery within a Copse backdrop to the garden, so the ideas keep coming we keep planting, happy client happy team.
Do you have a project in mind or would you like a Design to work to, we can definitely help with all ideas, Consultancy and Advice also available 😊01420 83471
