Large Gardens


Large Family Garden (With Chickens!)

, , ,

This large family garden featured a large pergola-type structure in the centre, behind which the owner had a makeshift chicken coop. We removed the old pergola, opening up the garden, and re-homed the chickens in a purpose-built, fox-proof coop to one side. We then [...]

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 [...]

Picturesque Formal Garden

, , ,

In 2013 we turned a bare patch of this garden into a picturesque formal garden with a dramatic fountain at the centre, surrounded by beds edged with box hedging and filled with tall purple verbenas. We now also look after the regular maintenance [...]

Large Formal Family Garden

, ,

We took over the regular garden maintenance for this client in 2012 and amongst other things we reshaped and trimmed the large formal hedge within the garden, to get it looking its best. We also recently completed a formal design for the front [...]

Raised Formal Pond

, , ,

The old sunken pond in the formal area of the garden had seen better days. By raising and enlarging the pond we not only made it into a striking feature on which you can sit whilst feeding the fish, but also gave more [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
