New Garden Design In Rochester, Kent
This rear garden in Rochester was recently completed and already looks well-established.
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 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 the talented Sam Beetlestone and his team at Beetlestone's Garden Maintenance. Photos by Sam Beetlestone.
