The key to a successful garden is a close working relationship with the garden owner; many of our clients have become good friends. As a living extension of not just the house but also of the thoughts, loves and imagination of the garden owner, designing and building garden together is a very special relationship. We thus design and built gardens based upon a client’s favourite colours, favourite plants, a favourite painting or statue, and can specify particular plantings to lend an exotic or contemporary air to city gardens, or a wilder more natural feel for town and country gardens. We will often take the house or building associated with the garden as a starting point for a design grid – thus tying both space together from the start. Design principles – masses, spaces, voids and the Golden section – then take the design forward where the garden comes to life and the fun bit begins with layout and planting schemes.
