Medium Town Garden

This property already had a fairly established garden before it was completely removed to allow for a new basement being built underneath the entire footprint of the garden. We had the task of designing a stylish, mature looking garden on top of the new basement roof, with only a maximum depth of 80cm of soil.
The site had several new concrete beams running across it that only allowed a maximum build depth of 15cm. The added complication of three large circular skylights across the garden made the design stage more challenging.
One of the prerequisites from the client was that there must be a large lawn, trees and sculptural planting in the garden. With some careful thought and lots of scribbling out ideas we finally found a solution that covered all bases and looks good. These photographs were taken six months after planting had been completed.

Garden Layout Plan

We use several different design software packages at various stages of the design process. 3D digital sketch software is used in the early stages to create concepts and quick visuals. We use CAD (Computer Aided Design) to create the final detailed layout plants and construction details.

We're passionate about plants. We draw up a detailed planting plan for each project, showing the name, quantity and location of each plant.
