Are you tired of looking at your outside space and wishing it invited views from your house during the Winter months and inticed you outside in the warmer months?
What better New Year Resolution 2024 than redesigning your garden so it fullfills the wants and needs of your and your family? A garden designer can help you to create the perfect space, by helping to identify how you would like to use your garden and assessing the pros and limitations of your current space and how best to work with them.
Here's some examples of some of the ways that I've helped by clients to acheive the garden they desire:
Wildlife Friendly Gardens
One of the most common complaints I hear from potential clients is that the planting in their current garden is drab, unappealling or non existant. Plants are the life blood of any garden and it is so important for the future of our planet that we encourage as much biodiversity into our gardens as possible. My E11 Industrial Style garden shown above embraces wildlife friendly planting with a wildflower lawn, trees and pollinator-friendly herbaceous planting providing an inviting space for humans and insects.
2. Front Gardens
Front gardens are so important in creating an impression of your house and are often overlooked. This E5 Family Front Garden was completely transformed, creating valuable bike and bin storage, whilst improving the kerb appeal of the house facade with beautiful custom Art Nouveau style railings, brick walls and graceful planting.
3. Dog Friendly Gardens
Often potential clients have gardens that are completely unsuitable for their pets or they are worried about plants that are poisononus. The planting in my N12 Dog Friendly Garden is not only non poisonous to dogs but also resiliant to the occasional trampling.
4. Family Gardens
Family garden design has to fulfill the needs of all members of the family and seating areas for dining, relaxing or just hanging out with friends are always at the top of the priority list. My E11 Industrial Family garden designs incorporates two seating areas; on L-shaped concrete bench/planters which provides a seculded space for family dining and entertaining and a relaxation patio in the sunniest part of the garden to enjoy sunbathing or evening drinks.
5. Secluded Gardens
Urban gardens tend to be overlooked by neighbours or from the street. I've used pleached Carpinus (Hornbeam) trees and a feathered Betula jacquemontii (Silver Birch) to create privacy in my N5 Seculded Family Garden.
