- Timescale – 10 weeks
Summer 2018; our biggest and most exciting project to date.
In November 2017 we were contacted by a client who had recently purchased a new build home in Thame, Oxfordshire. Their large garden was a blank canvas of turf and basic paving and they desperately wanted the space to reflect the interior of their stylish new property.
Having sought a designer of their own, we were provided with the plans and drawings and asked for a quotation.
The design was created by the impressive and reputable Garden Designer Richard Key and we were excited to explore the drawings and learn more about the vision he had in mind for this space.
The garden would incorporate tropical planting supplied by Folia, a trendy and relaxing seating area, lawn edged with metal edgings, a variety of paving and an imaginative play area for the younger residents at this home.
We were also asked to create a lighting plan for the garden too.
Once underway, the initial stages of the garden involved striping the existing lawn and paving back to a muddy surface.
The Drone proved extremely useful in taking some birds eye view shots of the work in progress.
The team then began to lay the patio and construct the rendered wall, which created the perfect back drop for the seating area.
The garden featured lots of other quirky items such as this drainage grate by Lateral Design. It is always useful for the team to work with new products and materials.
The main paving used within the garden is London Stone, Khaki and the paving featured in the pathway is Bradstone, Madera Porcelain.
Whilst the majority of the garden is on one level, there are also steps which run down to a lower path at the side of the house.
The garden also comprised Cedar screening and a sunken trampoline for the children. The play area also has recycled rubber chippings from Monster Mulch, which creates the perfect soft surface for outdoor play.
The lighting Jack designed compliments the screening wonderfully and creates the perfect night time ambiance.
The elegant lighting around the seating area finished the garden beautifully and created an aesthetic exactly as the client desired.
We all thoroughly enjoyed building this exceptional garden and look forward to working alongside Richard on many projects in the future.
