London Garden Design Diary – Week 4

Grow a Friendly Space

London Garden- Matt has had a slow week on site due to the weather, as most of the jobs he needs to complete on the garden design and build in Bethnal Green , such as painting walls and sheds, require a dry day. He has fixed some lighting and completed the planting, however.

Katrina has been working on the postal garden design for our clients in Tadworth Surrey. The client has a relatively new house and wanted a curvy garden design to self-build over the coming year. Click on the link to read the details of this landscape design in Surrey.

Katrina has run into a few complications for our garden design in Romania, as some of the measurements supplied by the client don’t seem to make sense. Katrina has emailed the client a layout asking them to complete the dimensions. Once she has these dimensions hopefully it will be plain sailing.

Updates continue on both our web-site and our garden design portfolio. The job is a long and laborious one and attention to detail takes it toll on concentration. We have several new projects to add to both our web-site and portfolio as well as updating all our magazine articles. If anyone has any comments regarding our web-site it would be great to have some feedback.

Matt has been asked to produce a quote to replace some garden decking and fencing in Holloway, North London.

We have also been contacted by a multi-media communications company based in Shoreditch, East London, to provide a quote for a temporary roof garden for an event they are holding in July. They require a long deck and pergola built over a shallow bespoke water feature. The roof terrace is on a 5 storey building with limited access, and they would require the project to be completed in 5 days prior to the event, so it would be an interesting and challenging project.

Katrina was contacted with regard to a small garden design in West Hampstead. The client has a small son and wishes to create a safe outdoor environment for him to play. They would like to remove the existing paving and replace it with decking and artificial lawn. He is in discussion with his wife as to whether they require a design lead approach, adding more into the space, or whether they would like to follow a more practical approach and scale down their plans for the garden to allow funds for the interior renovation of their new property.

Katrina is taking bookings for her garden design courses. The next batch of courses will take place in the Spring and are beneficial for both trained garden designers and students alike.

The guys at popular garden design blog, Studio ‘g’, have run another fantastic feature on Earth Designs this month. Click here to read the post.
