Client: Mr J.T,
Location: Wooburn Green
Landscaping Brief: The objective was to re-design the large rear garden creating a more modern feel and refreshing the look and feel of the garden space.
The client wanted a striking garden, despite having a very modern, one dimensional space to work with. For the project we decided to use this space as an advantage, and the project used elements from Japanese landscaping to give a minimalist look.
However, it was important that we added height and ‘the wow factor’ without risking overcrowding. The initial solution was based around the reclaimed look black pergola. The deep colour was perfect as a contrast against another feature that added brightness – the polar white marble aggregate and Cotswold chipping stones. These crisp cream angular stone bringing needed brightness to the garden with a buff texture.
We completed the pergola’s placing with narrow bamboo canes which were placed to add a visual break against the stones, whilst boxwood shrubs and acer maples created interest and added low maintenance nature to this clean and crisp garden. Limestone paving leads the way to the end of the garden, which leads naturally from the new decking from the main entrance to the garden. The mix of gravel with boulders of varying sizes add interest in large areas and provide a stunning overall effect.
