London Garden Design Diary – Week 12

Grow a Friendly Space

Matt’s site in Brentwood continues, with edging and block paving almost complete. We will need to return to install plants when the plant order is ready.

We have now contracted the Bushey garden build. Matt visited the client to discuss timings and assess the clearance, which Tue client has been undertaking himself

Katrina went to visit a client wanting a garden design in Palmers Green. They have recently bought the house and are planning major refurbishment and updating to the interior, including a new indoor swimming pool and gym building. They initially want ideas as to how to refurbish the front garden, including an old wall with fencing on the top. With soil piled up against one side of the wall, at varying heights, it looks likely to be very costly to rebuild or replace. Katrina made some suggestions we to how to address the issue, before moving on to discuss concepts for the back garden.

Our postal garden design client has responded with feedback on the three sketches sent to them a couple of weeks ago. They like elements of all three and have responded with their own thoughts translated into a sketch.

We have had further correspondence with the potential client wanting a garden design in Chiswick, who is keen to obtain a quote for a curved raised bed and hardwood decking. However, timing is an issue as he would like to complete the work by

May and we are already booked up until mid- to late-May. He will get back to us as to whether he would like to wait for our services or go elsewhere.

Katrina also visited a garden gift voucher client in Wandsworth. They have a very small garden and are looking for inspiration as to how to maximises the space to include storage for

bikes as well as an area for a toddler to play. By including fixed bench seating with storage capabilities underneath, as bespoke shed, and allowing for artificial lawn throughout he space, we managed to answer the brief.
