Family Garden Weston, Bath
A garden which had become unloved and rarely used due to the patio and planting being in the wrong place.
By switching a small patch of grass to paving, bringing the new colourful planting closer to the house and sunnier seating area, this became an inviting space. The new garden office now has a wonderful view and the family felt connected to their garden.
A 1930’s house, recently renovated with a modern twist, needed a garden to compliment. The light buff paving and modern design combined with a limited colour palette of mixed herbaceous and shrub planting, ensured this garden looked established after the first season’s growth.A flexible design with two seating areas capture the sun or shade from morning to dusk
Late Victorian Garden, Lansdown, Bath
To link the new raised terrace with a steeply sloping garden, using a style that complements an early Victorian villa.
It was decided that the slope could become a feature. Sweeping stairs were built to link the areas, which created two large raised beds. These were perfect for Victorian shrubberies, planted with a rich combination of textures and colour. The lower level lawn became a traditional flower garden with symmetrical curved beds cut out of each corner. An existing large metal rose pergola was restored creating a glorious Victorian garden feature.
