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.

Herb gardens don’t have to take up much space

Here’s a pair of containers that we supplied for a client’s terrace – right outside the kitchen door – perfect for cooking!  Although the containers are only a metre wide and 30cms deep we were able to fit the following hardy herbs in there.

  • Bay
  • Curly leaf parsley
  • Flat leaf parsley
  • Chives
  • Oregano
  • Thyme
  • Lemon Oregano
