Ickenham - Ruislip
Low maintenance gardens are often requested by clients.
This was the same with this client, with their brief also stating:
- A family with 2 boys
- The parents are interested in contemporary painting, contemporary design, literature and natural history
- The garden to be interesting and to change throughout the seasons
- To provide an element of privacy from the neighbours
- Must have space for games, a rotary clothes drier, a compost bin and some form of rainwater storage
- The planting is to include shrubs and some perennials and could include up to 3 small trees. No annual plants, water or a ‘cottage garden’ look
- To be used for entertaining and outside dining weather permitting
- To be relatively low maintenance – approximately 2 hours a week
This Garden is still in the planning stage and is yet to be built.
