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 – Gentle Journey

This gently curving design for a large suburban garden in St Mellons near Cardiff worked really well.  Originally a single space we created a garden with multiple sunny and shady spaces, making the most of the mature specimens that were already in the garden.

New Design – Minimalist White Chic Urban Garden

Minimalist White Chic Urban Garden min-white-materials min-white-2nd-design-l min-white-upper3-plan

We transformed this small garden in Roath, Cardiff into a modern and contemporary entertaining space.  By removing the old garage that wasn’t really used we increased the overall space by more than a third allowing two  separate areas – dining and cooking, as well as lush specimen planting.

Contrasting materials including sawn sandstone and composite decking were used to provide a clean crisp finish.  Lighting and a water feature that works it’s way through the length of the garden completed the effect.

New Design – Garden Room Garden

sback-act4 sback-act6 sback-act2

Here’s a garden we designed which was built and planted last year. The client had built a contemporary glass garden room and wanted a space built adjacent to it to provide a focal point and an entertaining space.  We’ll be back later in the year to take photos of it in full bloom.

You can find the full detail of the design and lots of photos on the design’s page here

Formal Water Feature at Dyffryn Gardens

Here’s a nice formal water feature. The shallow pond is one of four in a formal space.  The bubble fountain placed just below the surface creates concentric ripple at the apex of the overall curve of the pool.  This creates subtle movement and sound.

The pool can be found at Dyffryn Gardens near Cardiff, Wales.

The official site for the gardens, that are currently being restored, is here
