Garden Design Cirencester & Cotswolds

Recent Project

A rural garden on the outskirts of Cirencester in a tranquil setting.

With a very full brief which included the requirement for water, a good sized greenhouse and a gazebo seating area with access from many other areas it was always going to be busy area but by compartmentalising the features between access paths harmony and isolation between the features is achieved.

The planting hues reflect the silver blues of the cedars and spruce backdrop and the timber coatings also lend weight to this effect.

The clients bought this beautiful garden seat from a flower show and we were then asked to create a space in this small Cirencester courtyard garden to show off their investment.

The arbour seat is of course the main feature so we didn’t want to detract from it but just give the effect that it had always been there. Light and delicate pastel colours were used and of attention was paid to incorporating perfume and with that comes the ability to attract butterflies and bees.

A great place to settle into at the end of the day.

This long this garden has been divided up into three quite different compartments or rooms but with a visual link between them.

This nearest garden was required to be a shady seating area off the home office building. The form comes from the existing Yew hedging reduced in height to form cubes of texture to enforce the outdoor room effect.

The boundary yew hedges help distort or upset the long linear shape of the available space but with the gun sight feature the is a clever link right through to the very striking obelisk in the distance. This is even more evident when entering the garden from behind the camera.

“Having decided my very overgrown and rather tired garden needed some help from a garden designer as we didn’t know where to start, Nick came up with a super new design identifying our true desires for a trouble free, colourful and bee friendly scented country garden. Nick and his team worked quickly and efficiently, adapting the plan when necessary, and the result is thrilling. I love my garden and under Nick’s guidance I have a renewed interest plants and am enjoying something new developing every day. Nick really has made the most of the space and we now have lots of places to sit and enjoy the gorgeous planting. The garden surpassed all our expectations and continues to come to life.”
