Rural garden

10 January 2020

These pictures were mailed to me by a very happy client - the last one is a 'before' shot and you can see there has been a transformation. Initially my client was unsure about the large pond, but as you can see from the photos, it is already a wonderful feature, with the dramatic boardwalk, overhanging deck and oak gazebo. I love the way a body of water brings the sky down into the garden, and creates stunning reflections. In the Spring, the aquatic plants and lilies will rapidly establish and create a fringe of vegetation which will be great for native wildlife - dragonflies and damselflies discover new ponds in no time!

Next to the house, the dilapidated terrace was replaced with a mix of brick pavers, limestone, and self-binding gravel, with a raised bed and impressive oak pergola framing an outdoor dining area.

The contract also included upgrading the driveway, parking and entrance area; extensive new planting; lighting and a wildflower area. All expertly built by one of my favourite local teams, Emotive Landscapes.
