The front garden of this Edwardian property required a complete renovation. An old and leaning privet hedge had undermined the front brick wall pulling it over as it toppled forward; this was the catalyst for our clients to take the initiative and address their unloved garden space.
The front garden was seriously compromising the curb appeal of the property, the tarmac driveway although in reasonable condition was not wide enough for a modern family car, the tiny lawn impractical, planting overgrown and the crazy paved path broken up and even.
The new layout removes the separate pedestrian path, closing off this access and diverting the route through the new garden layout via a sweeping curved stone sett path. A trio of specimen trees adds height and privacy and planting is planned for maximum spring and summer colour and to draw wildlife into the garden. The focal point of the garden space is the bespoke bird bath with wide copper dish mounted on a green oak post.
