  • Matt has been back to the Urban Garden Design London in Holloway Urban Garden Design London to try and finish the site there. The cosmetic touches can sometimes take longer than expected, such as cleaning of the patios, touching up paintwork…
  • The landscapers in Chingford have been hard at it installing paving and constructing the upright sleeper walls for the raised beds.
  • The modern garden design in Woodford has also been progressing with the installation of the Perspex screens and decking. Next week the team will be installing the plants, shade sail and lawn, with electrics to install the following week.
  • Meanwhile in the studio, Katrina has been working on her postal garden design for Croydon. The client had selected which of the three options she preferred and had requested we draw up option 3 to scale. She wants bright colourful plants in a traditional cottage layout. She has several existing items of garden furniture, such as obelisks and rose arches, that she wants to incorporate in the new design. Katrina compiled her planting plan and included all her items on her wish list and sent the plan across. Her response was great: ‘Thank you so much for your help and your suggestions, that should be fine then, thank you for your prompt responses. Your service has been amazing!’
  • Katrina has also started the drawings for the garden design in Hackney. This awkward shaped garden throws up challenging design techniques. It is a family garden that requires several multi purposed elements to maximise the space. Katrina now needs to design the planting and lighting scheme to suit.
