Project type: Design & Build

Date completed: pre 2010

Location: Croydon – South London

Design brief:

Our clients required a stunning and traditional garden to complement their stunning home, include a spectacular water feature, a kitchen garden, new terraces and driveway together with lawn areas and a stunning planting scheme. A lighting system and irrigation system were also designed for install.

Project Notes:

The rear of the garden was built first, working our way out to the front over the course of a six month build duration. The large pond, stream and 1.8m waterfall was one of the main features of the rear garden, together with a large riven yorkstone and granite sett terrace which wraps the house.

The kitchen garden and path network were formed at the side of the house, the walled garden is built in traditional clay stock bricks with period styling and detail, 3 large vegetable quadrant beds where planted with topiary for all year round structure whilst maintaining maximum floor area for the vegetable harvest. Fruits and climbing varieties are planted around the outside, trained onto ornamental trellis frameworks.

Behind the kitchen garden we blended into a woodland theme, creating meandering chipped paths and a journey through the vegetation to past secretive seating areas and finally reach the disguised pool plant room.

The front garden hosts a large in-out driveway formed in a ½ circle format with a wide apron to link into the multi bay garage which already existed. The driveway frames the front lawn which creates a stunning green expanse and sense of space, with boundary planting to screen and maximize privacy from the public road.

The garden is brought to life at nighttime with a multi zone lighting system, an underground pop-up irrigation system keeps the plants moist and lush throughout the hotter seasons.
