We have been so busy in our London Garden Design studio we have been late with our diary, but here’s this week’s offering. We currently have two sites under construction:

London GHarden Design Diary week 18 2013

The landscaping in Holloway was nearing completion a few of weeks ago, but suffered delays due to the cold and constant rain and was held back further by the client going on holiday. Matt and the team will return next week to lay the lawn, install the lighting and complete a few other outstanding items. The majority of the planting was completed before the client went on holiday, but there are still some Iris, Eremus, Anemone and box balls left to install..

Matt is also working on a garden build in East London. The site in Highams Park is using a range of different material, including hardwood decking, paving and railway sleeper furniture and retaining walls. The team partially cleared the site and installed the decking and pergola while we were away, leaving paving and railway sleeper furniture to construct. Matt has made a start on the sandstone paving, while the rest of the team continue to clear the space (all through the house) and bring materials in.

Earth Designs has been featured in a new online publication called ‘gardenlovelife’. We were highlighted as a London Garden Design company and features one of our small urban gardens in Essex. The magazine is packed full of sumptuous photos of aspirational gardens and is to be published digitally every quarter.

Katrina has also been interviewed at length for an up and coming Real Homes magazine article on our garden in Sevenoaks. The article focuses on small modern garden design and discussed in detail the variety of materials and methods of construction

Enquiries are coming in thick and fast after we were mentioned in Living Etc Urban Garden Designers supplementary magazine last month. Katrina has several potential clients throughout London and the South East booked for consultations in the coming weeks.

Contracts and deposits are in the process of being finalised on the garden design in Woodford that we secured in the last couple of weeks. The garden design features planting, decking, lawn and Perspex screens to overcome the privacy issues faced by the client. Works are due to start at the end of May as the client is expecting a baby at the beginning of July and would like the works to be completed by then.
