Garden Feature- Green Walls

Green Oasis on your Boundaries

Green Walls provide a vertical treat and particular work well in compact gardens where space is limited as you can see below, providing a much needed green oasis!

We have been successful in implementing green wall features into Garden Boundaries in recent years showing not just softened backdrops but focal point draws as well.

Boundaries are always underestimated in peoples gardens, they do not just provide privacy but a fantastic chance to create something extra special in your space.

Garden Feature- Outdoor Kitchens

King of the Grill! Canopies & Kitchens

Whether its a simplified place setting for your barbeque to sit in or a full spec kitchen bar set up we haven’t designed one scheme in the last two years without one.

More and more people especially over covid times have realised how much time they spend outdoors cooking, entertaining or relaxing so kitchens, bars and canopies come hand in hand.

We always recommend a canopy of some form whether its louvered aluminium or timber to provide shade in any south facing sun and also so you can enjoy a beer in the dry still if it is drizzling outside. So many of our clients find their outdoor kitchens have completely changed the way they use their garden to all year round use come rain, shine or even night time.

Success is in its use!

Garden Feature- Fire Pit Areas

Fire table, Ember bowls and Sunken Footwells

We love a fire pit especially Sunken! 

Creating a sunken area in the garden adds to the intimacy of these glorious chill out spaces. These can double up for entertainment as well as enjoying those more private moments over a marshmallow or two, another must have for clients in recent years.

Gas or Charcoal normally sets the presidence to how you want to maintain this space. Contemporary surfaces better suit gas for easy cleaning, gravels for charcoal. 

Gas tables or bowls keep a clean heat vs charcoal or wood urns can be more messy and better suited to the end of the garden.
