The gardens of this property were in a derelict and overgrown state when we first visited. The garden was very exposed to the vehicles and passers-by on the road. The design and site work were undertaken in two phases. The modernist design of the house was reflected in the design and materials of the garden, with simple geometric shapes and black paving. Screening was added along the roadside and a larger and much more useable parking area was built with black granite edgings and a grey granite chip rolled into hot tar.
We designed and commissioned bespoke metal gates to separate the two spaces, which matched the modern kitchen and sun room extension, completed before we started work on the garden. A modern planting of grasses and perennials soon filled the planting beds and softened the design. Modern oak pergolas planted with Wisteria, added height and interest.
