A challenging job in terms of access and space this was a great opportunity for us to get our teeth into some technical and precision work. The plot was a muddy slope when we got there and we had some pretty complex drainage and structural work to undertake to terrace the garden and make the best possible use of the available space. The different style elements in the garden are numerous and it draws on a lot of different inspirations to bring it all together. It does all come together really well and as you stand in the garden there is so much character and detail that there is always something to look at and enjoy. The York Stone steps, clay block pavers and Yellow stock bricks work beautifully together. The herringbone pattern is a perfect complement to the other features. The bespoke trellis was an ideal solution to provide screening whilst not compromising on space. Fitting to the nearest millimeter it is under and inch wide. Although unseen there is over 25 m of drainage in this garden including a land drain. It is almost invisible and totally effective whatever the weather. There is also under bench storage, something which is notoriously difficult to achieve without water ingress. We commissioned a bespoke plastic inlay with a sealed lid to ensure all of the content remain dry all year round.
The garden comes to life at night. It is a totally magical space. The pontoon lights draped over the arch way, the luxurious brass step lights, the antique wall lights and the spike spot lights in the beds make for the most spectacular effect. It is a garden you could sit out in long into the night. The garden was designed by Katharine Wills and built by HG Landscapes.
"I highly recommend Jeremy and the HG Landscape team. They were extremely professional, a pleasure to work with and coordinated very well with the construction crew that was simultaneously refurbishing our home. Our garden (which was completely built and installed by HG Landscape) turned out gorgeous, exceeding our expectations. We are so excited that the weather is finally warming up so that we can spend more time enjoying it!"Rachael Johnson SW5 Read more testimonials
