Over recent years the garden has seen the design boundaries pushed back further than any other “room” in the house. People now embrace the fusion of complex structures, woods and metals, paint, colour, modern aggregates, innovative water features and exotic plantings as a whole. Garden design has become fresh and invigorating once more.
Interestingly at the same time we’ve all become more aware of the natural environment and looking after it. As a result we’re finding that more and more of our customers want to “put something back” and we just love the opportunities this presents. We’re now engaged in re-creating wild flower meadows, wooded areas, native hedgerows and even the old practise of coppicing. We’re implementing planting schemes that encourage a whole host of wildlife to flourish once more. Even in the smallest garden it’s amazing what birds and butterflies can be attracted with careful selective planting.
Water Gardens and Water Features
What is it about the sound of gentle splashing water that instantly creates a feeling of euphoria? It’s no wonder then that we are asked to feature water into our designs more and more. And that’s great because we love water gardens and water features too! The beauty of a water feature is that it brings a garden to life. As well as providing sound, water has the wonderful property of reflecting light enabling us to create dramatic lighting effects.
We can design water features in all shapes and sizes from simple fish ponds to pieces of “contemporary art” using materials such as stainless steel, glass, slate and stone. And why not go further? By combining your water feature with subtle lighting, it will transcend your garden to a different level in the evenings too.
