The brief was to transform an inherited, somewhat overgrown garden, full of dominating blocky shrubs, and make it into an exciting place for the children to play as well as a haven for wildlife. We specified nectar-rich plants for insects and hedging to provide birds with cover while foraging and for nesting.
The inspiration for the design was the diagonal, to give a sense of width in this long, narrow garden. The dynamic zig-zag path invites the visitor to wander and explore.
A gazebo offers somewhere peaceful to sit, year-round, and watch the world go by on the canal.
The children's play area combining a slide, climbing wall and monkey bars is hidden behind the gazebo.
