Here's a little design for a garden refurbishment on a budget, using the current paving and salvaging some of the existing planters to maximise the budget to spend on plants and accessories.
This 4m x 5m riverside garden borrows most of its landscape from beyond the boundary fence. However, the client wanted to create a private space with planting to frame the views from the conservatory.
New terracotta pots, punctuated with some glazed pots in jewel colours will add pops of colour, which can be repeated in chosen accent colours to fences and garden buildings.
Here's a quick peak at a new garden I designed which has recently been built in Rochester, Kent.
The new design for this 13m x 10m (much loved) family garden followed in the old footprint in terms of the patio, pond and lawn area, but was given a lovely new update. Inspired by a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show, the clients wanted to incorporate some textured walling, a new pond and to maximise the space an additional decked terrace was created to catch the evening sun.
The clients also had some lovely well-established shrubs and trees which they wanted to keep so the new planting scheme was designed to compliment - with a soft mix of grasses and perennials to create a succession of planting for year-round interest.
This garden was built and planted by the talented Sam at Beetlestone's Garden Maintenance.
