CHELSEA GARDEN DIARY JAN 26TH

Following a great meeting recently with the House of Fraser team (garden sponsors) we have been working hard to put the final modifications to our Chelsea show garden.  We are excited by the fresher direction the garden is going in as it shows a side to our design that is not always seen in our regular practice. 

Excitement aside however, the sleepless nights are starting now as we are really having to naill down who, where, when and what for all elements of the garden.  We are in safe hands on the build with Mark Gregory's Landform Consultants scheduled to create this potential master piece!

Our aim with the garden is to present an 'Outdoor room' but taken to an extreme however, the key point is that it is an achievable 'extreme' and will encourage people to look at their garden spaces differently.  The 'Fresh element comes in using materials that are suitable for outdoor use but will open up so many options to garden owners who are looking for a different approach to solving some of the main challenges to creating a wonderful outside space.

Last week, we have been liaising with a very talented garden illustrator in France who is busy preparing a n artists representation of our garden so we can go to press with it and the RHS can put it up on their web-site.  Much discussion has been had in the office over going for black and white or colour visual and is still to be decided but we cannot wait to see the finished article.

This year is different for Jason and I, as we are working more independantly.  In previous years, we have designed show gardens and floral exhibits for various companies within the horticultural industry but this time around, we are less behind the scenes, less anonymus.  So we hope to enjoy this is a new experience and be able to show case us and our practice a bit more.

The hard landscaping at Hemingford Abbotts is nearly completed and we are getting ready for the autumn planting.

Hopefully the before and after photos will show how the landscape design has reduced the size of the Baufritz house, better setting it within the site.

Suffolk Cottage Garden takes shape!

Our landscapers are busy building this new addition to a well established Suffolk garden in Tuddenham, near Ipswich. The new terrace has been designed to push further out into the garden and create a generous space in which to relax, eat and enjoy.

The terrace links the garden with the beautiful, converted barn so there is a strong flow from inside to out.

 
New Garden Design in South East London

Two years ago we designed garden in Suffolk for a clients weekend house which had just been refurbished, they are so pleased with results we are now looking to re-design their garden in Lewisham, South East London. The house is a charming Victorian three storey house with a lovely small garden surrounded by trees; the garden has become overgrown so most of the existing shrubs will have to be cleared with the exception of a birch (covered by a TPO) a damson and a large Bay tree.

At the side of the house there is the remains of an old heated Greenhouse/Conservatory which still has the original tiles on the floor, the heating grills and the cermaic tiles on the raised beds, this will be retained as it is and will become the client 'Fernery'.

Excited about the design and looking forward to making a start.
