Matt started work on a garden design build in London this week. The client will be having raised beds and a paving area which leads to panelled fencing. Due to no side access at the property, all excavated waste had to be transported through the house and the team were able to do this within a day.

Katrina visited a client in Islington, North London. The client had a well landscaped garden but the family had outgrown the space. The existing climbing frame wasn’t needed anymore and a lot of the original planting had become oversized for the space. The client would like to retain the existing framework of the garden but add interest and modernise the space.

Katrina also visited a Thorpe Bay, Essex. The client were looking to landscape their back garden and turn it into a space they can be proud of and enjoy The garden does have some drainage issues and this needs to be addressed in their final design. They really liked Katrina’s designs and have already signed up for the Garden Design Package with a view to start work as soon as possible.

Katrina’s next consultation was for a client with a small courtyard garden in North London. The client recently renovated the house after the birth of their new baby and are now ready to revamp the exterior space. Measuring just a tiny 5m x 3m they are after a solution to maximise the space. Katrina came up with a garden design that includes an open pergola with table and bench with stainless still rill – all kiddy proof! A broad combination of materials will run across the floor and up the existing wall which will help to elongate the space and add interest.

Work began on a chef’s kitchen garden in East London. The space was cleared of the existing fence with new materials arriving for painting and timber structures.
