Designing your garden space….
….October, and I would like to take a slightly different direction for this article, we received the most wonderful letter from a fabulous client who we still see and go back to the garden designed back in May of this year……
Dear Christian, Lynn, Ian, Connor, Joe & Cam,
It’s Sunday morning and I’m in my favourite corner of the garden — on an Alexander Rose chair with a cup of coffee, next to the brick wall with all the beautiful planting on one side, and Andy cleaning the BBQ on the other. I can see the bees fluttering in and out of the ca mint and keep half an eye on the kids as they play on the decking, themselves in and out of the office. And I decided it was the perfect moment to pen an email to you all to say thank you for the incredible garden you have given us.
There is so much to say that I’m not sure where to start, other than it has very much transformed our lives. This garden has become the extension of the house that we needed. From hosting friends to just spending time as a family — the entire dynamic has changed from the space we had just this time last year. The new patio for the kids to run around and practice on their bikes, the vegetable patch (which is currently a "dedicated caterpillar farm” though we are getting some excellent produce that hasn’t been decimated by the soon-to-be butterflies), and the now integrated office that no look longer looks like a random rectangle plonked in the corner.
The choice of materials has really made this garden and we can’t thank you enough for helping guide us. The steel water feature and planters are a stunning and personal touch and I can’t help but be pleased with how they fit in with the new South Downs sign at the start of the A32! Which brings me neatly to the planting……..TBC next month.
Thank you again to you all and looking forward to seeing you soon!
