Medium Suburban Garden – Biddenham

This was a mature garden in which a large area of lawn had previously been retained for children’s play. The client now wanted a more interesting and more attractive space to relax and entertain in, with a variety planting to add structure and different textures and colours.

My approach to the design was to create a path to link the different areas of the garden: a summerhouse and small patio area, water feature and existing chicken run, weaving the path through planting in places to create an interesting journey and depth of planting, and using repeated patterns of planting to draw the eye around the garden.
