GARDEN PROJECTS

Wooden Structures & Planting

Creating new inviting spaces and painting with plants is hugely exciting. Playful wooden structures and natural planting with drifts of colour is our specialty.

TREE HOUSES

A fantastic brief, my client wanted a play space for their active children. Sport mad and great climbers, the boys wanted a den in the air! The house is constructed out of weatherproof timber with a felted roof and the tree house legs are braced and set in concrete. Slung underneath there's a climbing net and inside a table, weatherproof beanbags and a solar light.

HOT TUB DECK WITH PERGOLA

The project was very much a blank canvas. While my client had done extensive renovations to their property the garden had always been some way down the list. I was asked to find a solution with regards to the siteing of their hot tub and also an area to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The project included extensive planting, establishing an adjacent bed and privacy planting around the railings and pergola.

CLIMBING WALLS

This climbing wall is hidden away at the back of the garden, painted to fit in with the other garden buildings it’s a great addition and at over two meters tall it's great fun for young and old!

OUTSIDE ROOMS

The brief was to create an adult space where my client could extend their summer. We looked at a number of solutions and settled on wooden decking painted with a slate-coloured preservative. I also sourced and constructed and aluminium weatherproof pergola. The space has been a great success, alfresco dining and projector film nights!

LARGE SLEEPER PLANTERS

My client wanted to replace and aging formal garden at the front of a substantial property. Impact was important and the brief was to provide year-round interest. With a north facing aspect the choice of plants was important. A north facing aspect doesn’t have to mean dull and uninteresting, far from it. I used obelisks to provide some height and formality and constructed a three metre sleeper trough. This was filled with organic manure and planted and the results have been outstanding.

BIKE, WOOD & WELLIE STORE

Storage is always a huge issue, particularly for large families. I was asked to provide a convenient and visually appealing solution to provide weather-proof storage for bikes, wood and wellies. Everything needed to be accessible immediately with the minimum of fuss to put things away quickly and easily.

AQUATIC & MARGINAL PLANTING

A treasured client of mine asked that we rejuvenate a tired 1980’s pond. We drained the pond cleaned the pump and filters and cleared the plants. The brief was open for me to create a wildlife oasis, planting established aquatics and marginals we gave it an established feel almost immediately.

COMPOSITE PLANTERS & PLANTING

My client had recently installed composite decking and asked if I could design and construct two planters from the same decking boards. We put the planters together and planted a fantastic low maintenance display.

COMMUNITY PLANTING  

The Parish Council had bought some nicely designed seating with integral planters, in order to provide a lift to the Chobham Road in Sunningdale. I was asked to design and plant an original display that would survive with minimal maintenance. The focus was to deliver an interesting talking point with impact, but in a restricted small space. We were pleased with the results and also the feedback.
