London garden design diary week 1 2014

So a New Year starts – see what this year holds for this busy London and Essex Garden Design company

The New Year sees us off to a flying start with a new contract for a front and back garden design Woodford. The client lives in Austria, but has a house in London that they use several times a year. After extensive works to the house they are looking to the exterior. The concept drawing looks at creating a large circular seating area with incorporated some raised bed as well as a decking platform to surround a preservation order protected cherry tree.

Matt returned to finish the garden build in Goodmayes. The client was after a garden design on a budget and called on Earth Designs to revamp her space. The paved area is inset with crazy paved black limestone edged with sandstone setts, while up ended railway sleepers add interest in the flower beds. Planting is to take place later in the year.

Katrina has competed the first phase of a postal garden design in Manchester.  The client who lives in Congleton has a garden with a large slope and wants to reduce the levels to create a flat lawn. Katrina has emailed the three sketches for the client to choose which should be drawn up into to a scale plan.

A client who commissioned a garden design in Highbury, North London , 5 years ago contacted Earth Designs before Christmas to say that they would now like to go ahead and commission the build works for a Contemporary Garden Design. Since originally commissioning the design the clients have had two children and therefore have different requirements for the space, including a lot more lawn for her boys to kick about on. Katrina is in the process of looking at some options for her space with a view to commissioning the build next week.

Katrina went to see a potential client looking for Contemporary Garden Design garden design in Billericay. He bought the property last year and is undertaking a full renovation of the interior, and now is turning his attention to the exterior. He wanted a solution to level issues in the front garden and an aesthetic solution to compliment the high end and modern look of proposed interior. Katrina’s concept sketch included an elegant water feature build into a fixed seating unit, a way of making a wood store part of the architecture of the garden, and a large Mediterranean inspired pergola for all the family at the bottom of the garden.

Katrina is now taking bookings for her short garden design courses. If you are interested in ‘Google Sketch up for Garden Designers’ or any of the other courses please get in touch to find out when the next session will run.
