New Design – Sloping Circle Front

The success of the redesign of their back garden and the arrival of a large motor-home spurred this client to commission us to redesign their front garden.  The brief was to create a modern and clean design for the front garden, keeping as much as possible of the mature plants while increasing the access and parking capacity.

Feature Spotlight – Slate Water Wall

This modern water feature worked in all circumstances.  Made from quartzitic slate tiles that sparkle in the sun it is attractive when turned off.  It comes alive when switched on, the water gently cascades over the surface of the tiles.

To add a further dimension the feature is lit at night.  The pump and lighting are on separate circuits so you can choose to only hear it, only see it or both.

The water reservoir is hidden and so the feature is completely safe for children.

Modern Materials Design

Here’s a modern suburban garden design that we created in 2013.  We used a mixed of traditional and modern materials to create a crisp and simple design that made the most of the L shaped space.

New Design – Crescent Layers

This garden swept around two sides of a house in St Mellons, Cardiff.  A new conservatory had been added to the house and the client wanted a total reworking of the garden.  We designed a sequence of crescent shaped curved layers to provide a set of flowing forms around the house.

A patio sighted for the late afternoon and early evening sunshine was raised to catch the last rays of the sun and adjacent was a  small wildlife pond with an integrated and lit cascade.

New Design – All Square Contemporary Garden

Another new design – it’s been a busy year – and we’re very proud of this one.  Crisp and clean but highly functional it transformed the space for maximum use.  Bespoke blue glass panels by LightKiln Glass set off the modern planting and slate paving.

New Design – Rippled Circles

This is one of this year’s designs for a suburban garden near Blackwood in South Wales.  The original space, although a great size,  lacked function and definition so we created a design which unified and maximised the space with sweeping curves rippling out from the circular deck.  A new patio and barbecue area with herb garden was added adjacent to the house.  Now finished and planted the owners are delighted.

These are just a few taster photos – the full design page will be up on our website soon

New Design – Courtyard Garden

This is one of our more recent designs for a small garden in Cardiff.  The original space lacked function and definition so we created a design that segmented the space with bespoke panels and created views even though the garden is quite small.  Now finished and planted the owners are delighted.
