Designing your garden space….
…..February, where the light is starting the lengthen the day, and what I look forward to in winter are the mornings getting lighter, as we start early in this trade and it’s a struggle for all during these months. That’s why it’s important if you are designing a garden space for those that wish to see their garden, lighting can be quite an important element to design and planning. It means you see your space in the evenings, looking out over your outside room and it still being part of the house can make these months seem so much more delightful, even with all this rain.
Lighting up ponds or pathways and specimen plants, will always make a statement even if it’s just for you, making these areas stand out even in the daylight where other elements come to life, is the secret to a good design. Just before Christmas we installed a wonderful corten water sculpture which was lit with planting around, we are still to visit in the evening so we can get the best shot for you all to see. The client was happy as it was another bespoke feature, Christian designed and had made locally.
We are just planning and shopping for a small woodland area for a client who loves plants and just keeps making room for more and more, it’s lovely to able to buy and plant so many in one go, it will be fun to see it grow and create the space desired for the wonderful client.
Full garden designs are always available, plus creative landscaping as Mr D comes up with another wonderful idea for the garden from laser cut steel walls, to bespoke water features and beautiful ponds, we are here to inspire and help.
