This countryside garden was designed to cater for a family with 2
children and a very lively dog. Plenty of lawn space was left for the
dog to run around and the children to ride their bikes. The children
also gained a designated area to the front garden for their playing
equipment and sports in the future. For the adults, a large patio area
with elegant Indian sandstone paving was created to the back of the
house. A quiet shady seating area with a firepit was created to the
front garden with block paving to add continuity to the driveway.
Additionally, a garden swing tucked between borders forms a cozy lateral
lounge area. The planting is composed of a lot of British native trees
and shrubs to attract wildlife. Some of these trees screen off the power
lines that cross the bottom of the garden. They also screen off the
vegetable growing area which will give the owners a lot of
produce. Additionally, circular borders of coastal perennials were added
around trees as a nod to one of the owners' coastal hometown.
