The client wanted a complete transformation with an emphasis on low maintenance, a pond with a waterfall, and lots of planting for year round interest and something that would be wildlife friendly.
We relied heavily on evergreen planting to give some solid structure. The clients spend a great deal of time in the garden now and the new layout has made it easier to look after. A pair of reclaimed oak posts were used to make an entrance to the courtyard garden. The client loves Japanese styling so we opted for an area with a strong oriental influence. The bamboo screen dictates the theme and also hides some unattractive brickwork while giving extra privacy.
