  • Garden Design London Diary week3 2012One of our past gardens appears in this month’s edition of Real Homes magazine. The article is all about balconies and features the roof terrace we completed in Wapping, East London, 3 years ago.
  • Katrina conducted a consultation for a garden design in Brentwood on Sunday. The clients have owned the property for a year and now that the interior renovations are complete, they are considering getting the the garden designed. They called in Earth Designs to come up with a few ideas based on a Moroccan garden design.
  • We also went to see a potential client in Stratford. The front garden design will hopefully be funded by a grant from Newham Council, who are the host borough for the 2012 Olympics. The council are offering grants to residents to help tidy up the borough ahead of the games. The next door neighbour will also be applying for a grant for a new wall and tidy up for her front garden. Matt will send them a quote for the work.
  • The second instalment of our feature on the ‘studio g’ blog was published this week. You can read the full article by clicking here.
  • Katrina has started work on one of our garden designs by post. The client of this Surrey Garden Design likes our style and so commissioned a postal garden design. Katrina has completed the initial sketches and emailed them to him for comment and approval before the final plan and planting scheme are completed.
  • The layout for the garden design in Romania is underway. The clients had competed their own site survey and unfortunately there were a few measurements that didn’t add up, so clarification was required. Katrina has been liaising with the client via email to get the measurements ironed out before the design process begins. Click here to read what we have been up to for these clients so far.
