London Garden Design Diary – Week 32

London Garden Design: A week in the life of a London Based Garden Design and Build Company: Week 32 2011

  • In December 2010 Earth Designs carried out a garden postal design for a client in Wales.  The building was listed and the design was for a roof terrace, however not any ordinary roof garden.  The architects had designed a carport the roof to which could double as a terrace.  The terrace would be partly visible from the other side of a quay wall as so should incorporate planting to minimise any impact it may have on the views from the other side of the quay wall.  The client has recently contacted us again with regards to designing a garden around the ground floor of the property.
  • Work continues on gathering content for the new website which will replace here details of Earth Designs garden design consultations and postal garden designs can be found.
  • Work continues for the hard landscaping team in Willesden Green, creating a terraced garden.
  • The final touches are given to Earth Designs London garden design and build in Wanstead.  The design included furniture constructed from oak railway sleeper, dining table, benches and cubes as well as a bespoke enclosure for the client’s dog.  Part of the brief was for a hot tub which is now tucked in behind bamboos for privacy.
  • Katrina and Claire are scheduled in for a consultation in Romford Essex where the client has a large rear garden I need of attention.
  • Claire is due to present an design to a client in Maida Vale next week.  As the property is within a conservation area a planning application had to be submitted with regards to felling a tree which had signs of disease and poor pruning.  The design maximises on the space within the garden and incorporates contemporary bespoke pergola arches.
  • We have received an enquiry from an admirer of Earth Designs garden design and build ‘The Asiatic Garden’ with a query on sourcing Perspex which is used to create a feeling of semi-enclosure within a pergola structure.  The Perspex panels are removable and whilst giving a sense of enclosure do not impede views across the garden.
  • I have been contacted about doing a Garden Design for France. We are just setting up dates and booking ferries.
  • We are now booking our next batch of Garden Design courses. We have a wide range of one, two and three day garden design course tailor made for the individual please click here for further info.
