The best of the best, in terms of materials, were specified for this cottage garden in Twickenham: honeyed Yorkstone, together with beautiful Western Red Cedar and London stock bricks are woven together to create a space that is both welcoming and functional.
The client, a retired GP, wanted an updated garden without it too contemporary and without introducing any sharp angles or features. The design concept was to create warmth and interest through key features and use of the very best natural materials.
The large semi-circular seating area sweeps one side of the space, drawing one gently into the garden. An elegant pergola stands above, planted with white climbing roses and purple clematis, adding height and focus and creating a fragrant and welcoming seating/entertainment area.
Opposite, the raised bed serves for easy maintenance and is planted with scented foliage and flowers for year round interest and colour.
The feature fencing crafted in durable and beautiful Western Red Cedar to match the pergola and shingles on the new shed, harmonises the space.
The design was taken to the highest level by the skill of the fantastic landscape team. This includes handmade fencing and pergola, diamond-sawn Yorkstone paving and a bespoke, semi-circular bench.
