Essex Garden Design Diary Week 14 2015

Katrina has done three garden design advice consultations this week.

The first was a client in East London, Leytonstone. They lived opposite a client whose garden we recently designed. The client is looking for a low maintenance design that allows for bee, bird and butterfly friendly plants. The client waited 24 hours before giving the go-ahead to commission a garden design package, Matt is surveying the site next week.

The second garden design consultation was in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. The client had seen other designers but was not happy with the solutions that they had provided for the space. Katrina devised a concept sketch which included a large area of lawn, a teepee for the children and an adult dining area at the bottom of the garden. The client commissioned our garden design package immediately with Matt returning the following week to conduct a site survey.

Katrina visited Chingford to conduct our third garden design of the week. The client had bought a house which hadn’t been lived in for seven years. A garden clearance team revealed a large 120′ x 40′ garden. The garden is on a slope and included seven fruit trees and an old air raid shelter. Katrina created a design which broke the garden into five distinct areas. These will include a koi carp pond, a patio with an area for a summer house overlooking the reservoir, a lawn area and finally at the back of the garden, a second patio which will house the workshop and shed. The client is thinking about proceeding with the garden design and will contact us shortly.

The garden design for Romania is coming on with Katrina liasing with the clients as to what they like as well as materials they can access.

Works are continuing in West London.
