COURTYARD GARDEN, HASTINGS
The vision behind this small garden was to create a warm and inviting space. The client was keen to incorporate exotic plants into the planting scheme, and the courtyard microclimate lent itself to accommodating tender plants by offering protection from frosts.
We used different materials alongside foliage to balance softness and light. The planting was predominantly based on foliage, using different shades and textures of green to achieve a deepening effect. The addition of Dahlias and Hibiscus created pockets of colour against the lush leaf backdrop.
The client had also expressed that socialising and cooking were essential to this garden, so a small kitchen area and herb wall were a fun yet practical addition to the overall garden design.
COUNTRYSIDE GARDEN, ARDINGLY
The Ardingly garden estate was a project of significant size. The client wanted a garden that was easy to maintain while also looking beautiful all year round. Going into the project, we understood that large estates take time to blossom into pleasing landscapes. Through careful planning and the proper planting methods, we worked to transform the Ardingly garden into a captivating space for the client to enjoy.
To find inspiration for this garden, we drew on the natural environment around the property itself, as well as the client’s own requirements.The client was keen to implement deer proof planting to maintain the beauty of their garden, despite the wildlife challenges in such a large countryside location. They also wanted to entertain guests and a garden that blended effortlessly with the surrounding environment. we achieved all this and more with our thoughtful colour choices, plant combinations, and design features.
Naomi is just brilliant. She is a great listener and worked in partnership with us to create a garden that we love and that will develop over the years. We have gone from just bare ground on a new build site in January 2020 to a wonderful terrace filled with colour and interest.
SUBURBAN GARDEN, EASTBOURNE
We enjoyed designing this Eastbourne residential garden using the existing established trees as a background for the new design. We created a space in the garden to move and socialise, introducing two seating areas: an outdoor kitchen and a summer house.
The client requested additional planting to be introduced to the garden. So, our team enlarged the borders, introducing bespoke planters to draw focus and create a space of interest for planting. Height and shade featured throughout, with the introduction of trees and an obelisk.
Naomi was excellent in her approach and presentation. She worked with us to understand what we needed and how best to achieve it, even within a limited budget. She was happy to allow freedom and flexibility enabling us to develop ideas with helpful input and suggestions. Work is about to start.
