Stylish Woodford Garden Design


The clients had undertaken extensive renovations to the interior of their property and wanted their garden, which was in a state of disrepair, to match. The boundaries were a mishmash of different materials and the existing decking in such a state of decay that it was unusable. There were several levels in the space, in part dictated by ground level of the adjoining gardens. The clients wanted a complete overhaul of the space, with an area for dining and provision for storage.


The garden is reorganised into three distinct levels. The existing trees down the right hand boundary were retained in the new design. A wide thin storage unit with double doors provides ample storage down the sideway. Railway sleepers retain the existing soil as well as making a larger bed to feature some plants and improve the view from the lounge doors. A flat top tree planted outside the side doors give the wide sideway a courtyard feel. The paving throughout the space is cream limestone effect porcelain slabs. Steps lead up to an area of lawn, with porcelain stepping stone tiles creating a pathway along the right hand side. Railway sleepers retain the existing trees, forming a raised bed to allow extra planting.

A slightly raised patio in the bottom right corner is large enough to place an outdoor sofa and fire pit. This area features an architectural chunky timber pergola, to provide support for the existing wisteria, with a beam jutting over the lawn to create a support from which to hang a swing seat. The left and rear boundaries are clad with bespoke hardwood timber slatted fences and Perspex panelling. A railway sleeper bed at the rear of the garden manages the change in level in the rear corner.

Planting in the garden is simple, strong and architectural with low maintenance evergreens sitting amongst long flowering herbaceous perennials.
