What’s on the Board: London Garden Designs Diary Week 13 2014

Katrina has won another two London garden designs.

The first is principally a planting scheme for a family in Leytonstone who are planning on moving in the next couple of years but want to make the most of their exterior space in the meantime. The garden is quite shady with quite an ugly aspect so the planting scheme needs to be able to tackle this for them. A few of the plants are to remain in the final scheme and the client is keen to keep the conifer but struggling with what to plant underneath it. Katrina is now in discussion with her about proposed layouts and planting preferences.

The second design is for a client who intends to do a self build. A builder by trade, the clients are keen to maximise their outdoor space with as much greenery as possible, including a fruit and veg garden. They are keen to achieve a low maintenance cottage look and have requested a planting scheme that packs a punch year round.

Matt is busy with the the North London garden build, finishing off the planting in Highgate. The small cottage garden now has artificial lawn laid and a planting scheme that offers year round interest. Matt is just waiting for the globo lights to arrive from Italy then he can sign this garden off.

Preparations continue in Leytonstone on the brewery garden. Some of the footings have now been dug and concrete laid, which will allow wall building to start next week.
