The Landscaping Consultants - PRINCIPAL AWard WINNER 2018
The transformation of the front and rear gardens of this Victorian property used both hard and soft landscaping to create a minimalist feel in line with the client’s aspirations and exacting wishes.
The contractor worked with the designer to make adjustments to the original design to overcome potential root zone issues caused by an existing tree in the rear garden and a one hundred year old wisteria to the front of the house. The front garden is now a beautiful yet practical space. Almost 300mm depth of reinforced concrete had to be removed prior to work to create a resin-bonded permeable surface.
Light stone pathways surround formal planting reflecting the symmetry of this double- fronted Victorian villa and giving access to a single car driveway. A stunning tiled pathway, with blue and cognac tiles, gives vibrancy to the front of the house.
To the rear, two separate outdoor dining and relaxation areas have been created using porcelain ‘wood’ paving to complement the interior oak flooring on the ground floor. The brick boundary walls are a perfect backdrop for the formal, traditional planting palette.
