Our clients here were keen gardener’s, they wanted to transform their entire rear garden space creating a garden of formality, with mystery and interest, with varying seating areas and feelings within their space.
We designed the space with a network of paths and small terraces meandering through colourful beds planted with dense perennials to create a Kentish cottage style scheme.
We used yellow stock bricks to form our paths, reclaimed york flags to form the terraces that create several small secretive areas in the garden to relax together with the main dining terrace partially covered by an Oak framed Gazebo.
Yew hedging was planted to close the views at the end of the vista pathways, creating another twist and turn for the garden journey where another surprise would open up as you enter another room within the garden.
Although not particularly vast, this is a great example of how you can get lost in the garden, get away from it all to read on one of the benches of lost in the perennials beds whilst carrying out deadheading as the flowering period of the delphiniums comes to an end.
The entire garden scheme was a pleasure to build, our teams spent in excess of 3 months creating the hardscape over the winter period in perfect time for the fleshy perennials to be planted once the late winter frosts had given up.
