Project Description

Our client asked for a garden which was colourful, totally different and which she could walk around safely.

There was an electricity pole on the right hand side of the garden, we designed the garden to take the eye away from it. We decided to create a journey through the garden with different areas to sit. The walkway from the patio doors takes you through to the raised borders with seating in between. The cladding on the raised beds tones with  the colours of the beautiful brick wall across at the back of the garden and the plank paving with gravel brighten the area.

We created another seating area to catch the evening sun and from where it is possible to see the whole garden. There is an area of lawn surrounded by carefully selected planting with pinks, purples, greens and whites to give all year round interest.

The finishing touches are large corten planters with cloud pruned Ilex, outdoor mirrors to reflect light and stunning bespoke made furniture to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Client review: “A wonderful experience. Essex Garden Designs were professional, understanding with my requirements and were extremely hardworking and considerate. I would highly recommend all aspects of the business. A great team! Thank you for everything.”
