This client was looking for a garden designer in Rochford. They had a new build property which they had lived in for a number of years. The interior had been fully renovated so the client had turned their attentions to the garden which was a little unloved. They wanted to create a garden that had a real wow factor and also allowed them some space for the adults as well as the children. The client really liked the curved gardens that Earth Designs had shown them within the ED portfolio so Katrina created a large ellipse of lawn bounded on two sides by patio. An area for the dogs was to be created which can be fenced off. A selection of paving materials wrapped around the lawn would allow the client to travel from the lounge patio doors right down to the bottom of the garden. This was to be in black limestone setts and indian sandstone. Limestone paving was to provide the flooring in the main dining area which was to be situated under the pergola to provide respite from the sun. A double sided water blade allows for a focal point from within the lounge and also a play area for the dogs to occupy would sit in the space behind this. The pergola was to house perspex panels to create colourful lenses and also illuminated polyurethane balls to provide interest. The pathway travels across the space, doglegs in the centre and is edged with box hedging to enclose the lawn area from the dogs. To the right would be a large Cordyline or Australis tree which would be situated in the middle of the garden again to provide some shade. To the back of the garden blue perspex is affixed to the fences and two planters either end of a sofa. A large timber archway traverse the space will create a feeling of an outdoor room and further furniture can be sited underneath this area.
