Overview

Overview

The brief was to create a more interesting garden, to create some privacy and encourage wildlife. The design double pales the boundary fencing to create more privacy along the left and back of the garden.

Tall planting on the right side boundary will help to screen the gappy fence with a bespoke planter backed with trellis creating the most privacy on the lower patio. The planting is dense and varied to give screening, cover, habitat and nectar for wildlife. A hidden log stack will create habitat and food and encourage the formation of ecosystems.

The introduction of a simple pond will assist with increasing the biodiversity.

The top seating area creates a secluded feeling using posts and bespoke panelling to act as a trellis for climbers to grow which will further support wildlife and look/smell beautiful. Burnt, the structures will have a contemporary look but will also help to tie in the with the use of black bamboo in the planting.

The top terrace and half the middle will be lawn. This will keep the garden feeling verdant and who doesn't love the feeling of grass between their toes on a summers day! The design also allows the edges against the fence and around the planters to grow long. This is intentional, it will soften the edges but also provide valuable habitat for insects.
