Shenfield garden designer needed to breathe new life into outdoor space.

Jevin and Lauren called Earth Designs as they were looking for Shenfield garden designer. They wanted to give the garden a facelift. They were due to move in in a matter of weeks, and wanted to unite the space into something more exciting. They were having the interior renovated, and wanted the outside space to reflect high end design.

The Patio

The existing paving will remain, as will the existing raised beds which will be rendered and painted dark grey for a modern unified look. The main area of the upper garden will feature a series of circular lawns, edged with sandstone setts and connected by curved pathways constructed from sandstone setts.

Circles are placed through the space linked by paths.

The Lawns

A small lawn closest to the house will lead to a second, larger circular lawn which will feature a sandstone stepping stone pathway with the lawn around one half of the circle. A sandstone sett pathway will lead from this lawn to the existing sandstone circle in front of the poolhouse.

The Pathways

A sett pathway running along the poolhouse will arc down the garden to a final large circular lawn at the bottom.

The Archways

Large circular timber archways installed at intervals across the paths helps to break up the garden and provide height and a sense of journey.

Planting

Planting in the garden will be classic and elegant, featuring block planting in greens and whites with plenty of texture and year-round interest give the garden a fresh vibrant look. Tall hornbeams curving through the centre of the garden will also add height.

Boundaries

The fencing to the left hand side along the pool will be replaced with cedar panel fencing, whilst the rest of the fencing in the garden will be painted dark grey. The lower patio adjoining the house would benefit from an L-shaped outdoor rattan sofa and some illuminated PVC planters.
