London Garden Design Diary – Week 1

Grow a Friendly Space

London Garden Design Diary Noteboard Week 1 2012

Matt will be attempting to finish off several jobs over the next two weeks, while dodging the raindrops. He has a deck seat to build for clients in Stoke Newington, a little pointing for the paving in Hackney, and stain for the decking at our garden build in Willesden Green. We also need to undertake some work for a garden in Bow we partially built a couple of years ago (the finishing was postponed by the client due to a major extension they were having built on the house). Once all these projects are complete, we will be ready to start our next project in Brentwood.


Katrina has been contacted about a consultation for a garden design in Leytonstone. The clients have recently bought the house and they need a design for their long thin garden. Katrina is visiting them on Saturday to carry out a free design consultation.


A few minor changes are needed for the garden design in Maida vale. The client requires less decking, would like to include a garden office and also wish to explore different colour schemes. Katrina will be working on the tweaks over the coming week.


The last few details are being added to the Romanian garden design and interior design. Katrina visited Oliver and Alina back in November when they commissioned a garden design and asked Katrina to look at the styling for the interior of the house – you can read all about the project by clicking here.


Earth Designs is soon to have a regular feature on a very popular blog: Studio ‘g’. Katrina was asked to become a regular contributor in her role as a London Garden Designer, and her profile will be launched on the website this week. Studio ‘g’ is a daily website dedicated to garden and landscape design, developed and maintained by Boston-based writer, Rochelle Greayer. Launched in July 2008, Studio ‘g’  has been voted ‘best garden design blog’ by readers. Studio ‘g’ shares garden design inspiration, landscape ideas, hotel resort and spa gardens, outdoor art and design, industry events and trends, the latest in landscape products and services and aims to inspire readers to recognize a sense of place so as they travel the world they can celebrate and value it.


Work continues on updating our current garden design portfolio with some of our latest projects.


Our annual web-site update is also underway. Some of you that follow Earth Designs London Garden Design and Build on Facebook will have already seem some of our latest gardens. Once the update has been completed we will  be asking for your opinions on our latest projects.
