Calm and cool symmetry to renovate an old garden

My clients craved neatness and symmetry for a sense of calm in their tired garden space after months of house renovation works.  Their brief included a large lawn, extensive perimeter screening and a substantial evening lounge area. I created a geometric design softened with natural screening and sculptural focal points, and combined soft planting using a cool colour palette interspersed with dramatic purples and pinks.  Apart from lawn mowing and hedge trimming, the clients maintain the low maintenance planting themselves using the garden maintenance plan provided and an occasional Muddy Boots Guided Gardening session.

With thanks to Artform Landscapes for their expertise and attention to detail with this project

“Emma provides a superb quality and value for money service from start to finish. She has wonderful vision and intuition as to what her clients want. She completely understood our brief and produced a variety of plans with design and planting options which we could tailor to our budget. She project managed the works brilliantly and personally oversaw the planting. Emma ensured the whole process ran smoothly and was always available to discuss things. We are absolutely delighted with our new garden.”
