Design objective

To create a beautiful family garden to complement new house. Existing garden was a blank canvas, with a large wendy house & garden room. The design linked these elements to the house with a large central circular lawn and curving beds, allowing play and exploration, while giving the adults outside relaxation & dining areas set into a rich and varied planting scheme.

 

Project build phase

The first phase involved the installation of secure boundary fencing, then the installation of a 10000 litre rainwater harvesting tank, storing all water captured by the new terraces and the adjoining roof spaces of the house, which will then function to irrigate the garden's new green lawns and planting scheme.

 

Once all pipes, cables and tanks were installed, our craftsmen installed the hardscape terraces, then the steel framework to maintain the lawns clean edges and formality. All soil was conditioned to add drainage and nutrition for the new lawn and planting areas. Once the green stripes were laid, the beautiful low maintenance planting scheme was dressed onto the landscape.

 

The irrigation system watered the new scheme from day one to establish a late and hot planting scheme and the garden's remote control lighting scheme makes the garden magical in the late summer evenings.
