Garden Designers & Landscape Architects Oxford

Grow a Friendly Space


Earth Designs have years of experience working on all kinds of garden design in Oxford. We are a skilled and reliable team of local garden designers and landscapers. On this page, we will take you through the process of designing specifically a family garden in Oxford.

The design for these clients had to have something for everyone. The client’s had two young children so the design needed to include a play area, a dining area as well as occasional seating and screening for their two sheds at the back of the garden. The garden currently had some good established planting some of which was to remain.

The garden creates a space for the whole family. The patio area directly from the back of the house will be laid with indian sandstone in a stretcher course pattern. A cut-out planting bed in this space will be filled with either elegia tectorum, equisetum hymale or elegia capensis. An ‘outdoors room’, constructed from railway sleepers stained dark brown with occasional shelving for the client to add accessories and other object d’art, will be constructed to the left of the space.

The structure will offer ample room for an exterior table and chairs with the option to add a canvas sail for shade and privacy. To the right of the garden a curved tapered wooden wall will allow the addition of extra seating and provide screening from the garden beyond. Long walkways constructed from hardwood decking bisect this area and become a recurrent motif through the garden. Two large circular lawns will divide the garden into two sections.

The garden steps up at the corner of the pergola structure to accommodate the existing level difference, onto a pathway which lead the user down the garden through the existing children’s play area. The pathway will lead to a third seating area, positioned to make the most of the morning sun.

This area will benefit from a circular decked patio, again bisected again by a decked walkway, which will allow for sun loungers or a cafe style table and chairs. Mesh screens will help to hide the two existing sheds while serving to frame the attractive wall at the bottom of the space.
