Devon Garden

The ambition here was to create a stunning planting scheme that would liven up a dull leyandii hedge that was sparse and ugly at the base. Using a range of shrubs and grasses a sinuous scheme was developed with a spine of fresh Griselinia hedge and fronted and punctuated with hebes, pinus mugo, heathers, phormiums and grasses.

Coastal House

We designed this property perched on a cliff edge in hostile coastal conditions in Devon. The sheltered parts of the garden allowed dramatic sub-tropical planting with bananas, tree ferns, echiums etc and in the more exposed areas we used coastal planting suited to beach conditions.

Wildlife Garden

We designed this garden set in a woodland glade with a pond and seating on a timber deck overhanging the water.

Wildlife Pond

We designed this wildlife pond with timber decking and pebble ‘beach’. The aquatic planting was complemented with luxuriant large leafed bog planting including gunneras, peltaphylum and rushes.
