We have worked on an array of styles and designs from a Medieval Garden to a Contemporary landscape. But what is it about each that defines them into a specific category? As with all clever design, there is rarely one defining feature but, more often, a series of small details that, together, create a lasting impression.
This small garden was transformed into a coastal inspired garden. It lacked a sea view so we had to employ other design tricks to recreate the coast.

He quickly set about installing a patio but poor workmanship meant that, five years on, the paving slabs were loose, the joints needed repointing, the decking was rotten and dangerous, the self binding gravel was covered […]

When we first visited this garden, it was an unused area which was tired and joyless. The client wanted to do 'something' and had an idea about a greenhouse.
