We design by interpreting the needs, wishes and personalities of our clients into outdoor spaces which have been carefully considered within their context: in an urban environment we like to create gardens which are an extension of the home, often guided by the interior design or architecture of that home, while in a rural setting we look more at the character of the landscape for inspiration, to ensure that the garden nestles harmoniously and peacefully in its surroundings. The end result is a garden with an overwhelming sense of place.
The delicate use of contrasts is evident in much of our work because it can offer greater depth and richness to a garden: traditional or romantic styles can often be successfully combined with a subtle hint of modernity; formal evergreen topiary creates a pleasing backdrop to softer, more informal, wildflower planting; a palette of greens, yellows and whites can be lifted with the merest flecks of blue dotted throughout; or the architectural qualities of the plants themselves can be enhanced when lit at night, their shadows cast against a smooth rendered wall.
Our work is guided and influenced by the seasons and we believe that a garden should have something to offer all year round: even in the depths of winter, scent and even blossom can lift the spirits; soon after, a carpet of colourful spring bulbs heralds the end of winter as the days lengthen; sitting on a freshly mown lawn on warm summer evenings, the garden is naturally full of life and smells; and as autumn approaches and the nights draw in, the leaves on the trees colour beautifully and then drop, swirling in the freshening breeze.
