Modern Upgrade for Family Garden in Rochester, Kent
The new design for this much loved family garden followed in the footprint of the original layout, but was given a lovely new update. With a new modern sandstone terrace, lawn and pond area.
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 added to catch the evening sun. New sandstone paving and walls finished with a dry-stone wall effect create texture and soft tones to compliment the delicate planting palette.
The client also had some lovely well-established shrubs and trees which they wanted to keep so the new planting scheme was designed to accommodate - 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 Beetlestones.
