  • Claire enjoyed an afternoon in Balham with a client who had an Earth Designs garden design consultation voucher.  The final sketch included a curved raised bed with a fixed seat nestled into the curve and a daybed platform constructed from decking complete with weatherproof cushions for reclining on.
  • A postal garden design for a client in Northumberland is nearing completion, the design features artificial lawn and raised beds to keep destruction from the family dog to a minimum.
  • Earth Designs new gardens are in the process of being photographed professionally.  We had this exciting message from one of the photographers after photographing a garden build in Kent:  “Hi Claire, just to let you know that I went to Sevenoaks on Friday and had a very good time. Emma is a delightful person and couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming.  I kept saying to Emma that I had thought I would photograph the garden in a couple of hours, but I found it engrossing and in the end I spent much longer and went back in the evening to do the lighting. The garden is great. There are so many viewpoints and angles and is obviously a very good way to make a small space into a kind of adventure. I love the idea that, although you can’t see the whole garden at once, there are actually no hard boundaries at all, but just some angled boards. So it retains lightness.  I will send the pictures on when I have editied, but in the meantime, thank you very much. All the best, Marcus”
  • Work on the garden build Willesden Green has been slowed due to the wet weather, however the decking is near complete.
  • Katrina had a garden design consultation in W1 for a roof terrace amongst other things the merits of fibreglass containers were discussed, lightweight and available in a plethora of shapes, sizes and colours they are a great choice for a roof terrace.
  • Katrina is getting ready for her trip to Norway where she will have an detailed creative consultations with the owners of a rural retreat.
