Finished in 2021, this project exemplifies what can be achieved in a small space. This garden celebrates an awkward shaped, south east facing rear garden space and includes bespoke contemporary elements contrasting with existing features of a traditional English garden such as the unique tile capped brick wall to the rear, existing clipped beech hedge to the south and large mature Beech and Sweet Chestnut tree, each situated within the southern boundary line.
Strong lines of the bespoke sleek wellness pod, designed and built by us around our unique steel framed 'living roof' gazebo forms the centrepiece of the design, softened by the traditional planting of clipped yew and perennials lining a feature rill.
Framing the planting with structural forms of pleached hornbeam, punctuated with spheres of clipped yew and holly provide much needed structural interest in the winter months.
The main views of the garden are as shown below, taken from the house along the rill, from the lawn toward the entertaining spaces or within the wellness pod across the garden through the expansive folding sliding doors.
The garden has been set out to allow the planting to cut into the space from the margins, giving a layers of interest and bringing the planting to where the clients live - be that close to the house, paved seating areas, formal lawn or wellness pod where it can be appreciated from all angles.
