Our clients moved to Devon and asked us to design them a garden by post.
The new property had a small and unloved, sloping area of turf for a back garden, and they wanted to install a modern space for relaxation, including architectural planting and space for sculpture. They were also interested in working with a mixture of hard surfaces. We worked from a survey and photographs supplied by the client and, as well as design work, we provided construction plans to be used by a local landscaping company, and planting plans.
Making the most of Devon’s warmer microclimate, we suggested a primarily green planting scheme (with some white and purple) which included sculptural Fatsia, Trachycarpus fortunei, X Fatshedera lizei, Phyllostachys aurea, Musa basjoo, with some herbacious planting such as Zantedeschia aethiopica, Hosta ‘The Patriot’ and Hosta ‘Thunderbolt’.
