A Small Child-Friendly Space

,

The client here wanted to make their sloped, small front garden into a safe usable space for their small child. We therefore raised and levelled the area and put in a chunky sleeper wall. The newly flattened lawn was then re-turfed before we [...]

Steep Terraced Garden

, , ,

This steep terraced garden had served the previous owners well but our client wanted to open it right up to maximise the space for her young family. We removed a lot of material to achieve this from a greenhouse to raise beds and [...]

Small Urban Garden

, , ,

The aim with this garden was to revitalise a tired space into a useable garden for a busy family. The original garden was on a slope which was leveled into two defined areas. The rear area has a patio in the sun & [...]

Walkway Pergola

, , , ,

The old line of conifers behind the path in the garden had died and become covered with ivy. We therefore removed them and erected a new wooden pergola which spanned the walkway. This allowed us to open up the garden and yet retain [...]

A Modern Waterside Garden

, , ,

Situated on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, this garden had formerly been planted in an Oriental style but had become overgrown. Our client decided they wanted to change the garden to reflect the interior of the house so we designed a [...]

Timber Wall

, , ,

The main feature of this garden was the slope which took up so much room.

Striking Courtyard Garden

, , , ,

Having moved to a new house in London our client wanted the whole outdoor space freshened up. We achieved this by introducing many new plants to pots and beds in the garden, including Buxus and Hydrangea amongst others. We also set large planters [...]

Hard Landscaping Features

, , ,

A mixture of hard landscaping techniques were required here to repair, reinstate and install new features. Brick edging was replaced around the gravel drive, granite setts were layed where the drive met the road and an oak archway was erected with a basket [...]

Herbaceous Borders & Feature Olive

, , ,

Following the completion of a pool extension the client here was left with a number of large formal beds to replant. We decided upon a strong mixture of flowering herbaceous plants to add colour and texture. These were interspersed with other shrubs to [...]

Decking & Paving

, ,

The client wanted to replace a small, impractical patio with a large decked area with balustrade. We were able to reuse the slabs from the original patio and combined with the addition of a number of new slabs we created two hard-standing areas [...]

Gravel Driveway

, ,

Having recently moved into the property the clients not only wanted to open up the front of the house to allow more light in but also required space to park up to three cars. This was achieved with a gravel drive bordered with [...]

Rear Garden

, , , ,

This town garden suffered from a lack of form and shape. The introduction of the pergola over the existing patio created an intimate space for relaxing and the paths lead the eye down the garden creating an impression of length. Jamie helped [...]

Front Drive

, ,

Here an unattractive front drive and garden was transformed into a useable parking area whilst still retaining large beds ready for the client to fill with her favorite plant (it is now looking fantastic). The client wanted a loose gravel drive for environmental [...]

A Split-Level Garden

, , ,

Here we found a garden in need of some serious work! Overgrown with weeds, missing a fence on one side and with a difficult change in height. Our first job was to strip the garden of all plant materials. We then erected new [...]

Modern Twist on a Cottage Garden

, , ,

This garden was a bare rectangle of grass with no features save the shed in the corner. The design we came up with introduced height and movement into the garden through the winding gravel path and the three wooden pergolas. We also added [...]

Simple Turfed Family Garden

, ,

The brief here was to transform this large, overgrown, uneven garden into a useable lawned space for the family. The usually simple job of replacing the fence and turfing the area proved incredibly difficult because the foundation waste materials from a large house [...]

Docklands Light Railway

, , , , ,

At this site in Beckton, East London, we created a plan to revitalise the car park area, which is used by visitors to the depot. We replanted the main bed with multi-stemmed silver birch trees and added box, dogwoods and other shrubs, plus [...]

Low-Maintenance Garden

, ,

The only access to this small garden was through the low-ceilinged cottage, which created its own set of problems for us to overcome. The client wanted a garden which didn't need too much regular maintenance - such as lawn mowing - but where [...]

Small Family Garden

, , ,

The brief here was to transform an uneven, weed-infested area into a garden with form and structure to be enjoyed by all the family. We achieved this by stripping off the entire top layer of existing material and replacing it with new topsoil [...]

5-Bar Gates and Fencing

,

At this converted barn in the country, we replaced an old run of fencing and gates with traditional agricultural post and rail fencing and 5-bar gates. We also extended this run further to another soon-to-be-converted barn and added additional 5-bar gates at this [...]
