Hedgerley - Chilterns
We nearly all have rectangular gardens and this is very typical.
This couple wanted a relaxing space for entertaining plus an attractive garden to look at rather than the typical rectangular garden that everyone has.
They were happy to lose some of the lawn which allowed us to use soft curves to create a more appealing space, which visually widens the garden and creates larger planting areas.
We used clay pavers to draw the visitor down the garden from two access points and another patio was installed outside the Studio which is a sun-trap for most of the day.
A Sorbus and Multi-stemmed Amerlanchier were planted in key places to screen neighbouring properties and to provide interest in the Spring and Autumn. And evergreen climbers – Trachelospermum – will soon cover the fences which will then provide the illusion of an ever bigger space, linking it to the surroundings.
All this disguises a traditional rectangular garden and provides a lot more interest.
