Landscaping & planting plan 2020 Construction: late 2020 Planted: 2021 A very enjoyable project in a new, quite stylish subdivision. The owner had a limited budget, and 2 large dogs. We did away with all lawns, and created pebble pathways & soft plantings. I hope to convince her to pave an existing concrete terrace and extend the landscaping to her borrowed views by staining outside the fence + adding fairy lights to nearby trees.

Landscaping & planting plan 2020 Construction: 2020 Planted: 2020/21 This has been a most enjoyable project for clients who have lovingly restoring their character villa, and then turned their attention to the garden! We completely gutted the courtyard. We reused the old bricks, and added non slip black porcelain pavers. Lucy opted for instant hedge & topiaries. Climbing roses will scramble over the new central trelliage; & we are pleaching trees around the stained boundary fence.

Masterplan 2021 Construction: began late 2021 This is an interesting project for me, as it was my childhood home for 20 years! The house has been, and is continuing to be extensively renovated, but the back garden is largely un touched since I lived there. We are opening up the woodland, adding a utility area & productive food forest; painting, staining, straightening and rebuilding various retaining; and adding small deciduous trees and climbers to soften the drops between levels.
