We love pretty much all aspects of running our own gardening business. Even doing the admin is enjoyable as it can give us an excuse to hide indoors with a cuppa and a cat on our knee on a rainy day! But one of our favourite things about being both garden designers and landscapers is that we get to see the transformations through from beginning to end and we LOVE seeing the end result and how much the garden has changed from the sad space we first visited. So here is the first in our series of blogs on some of our favourite garden transformations…
Before: an ugly garage wall needed to be disguised as well as the rest of the garden being overhauled.
After: we used square-profile timbers to clad the back of this garage and instantly create a modern, stylish screen. A new patio as well as a deck with bespoke seating created different areas for entertaining.
Before: the garden had poor access and few redeemable features.
After: we transformed the garden into an oriental paradise complete with water feature and bespoke pergola.
Before: a waterlogged lawn and no seating areas meant this garden was rarely used.
After: beautiful sandstone was used in both the patio and the troughs which incorporate extra seating and soft planting. The lawn was raised and a gravel finish keeps the garden low maintenance.
Before: this inaccessible sloping garden was unmanageable for our clients.
After: we used chunky sleepers to create terraces at interesting angles and shapes with wildlife planting to soften.
