Spring & Summer Meadow Garden Design
We were appointed to tackle a well established garden, full of plants and trees with a recently installed swimming pool and tennis court. The garden is extensive with more formal areas around the house with less informal and naturalised areas towards the boundary and the wonderful views offered.
The first phase is to focus on the less informal areas and after some initial work by our renovation team we looked at two areas of bulb planting. The first under a large rhododendron border for early spring flowers and the second area for mid spring and summer flowers.
This project is work in progress and as we look at the remaining garden we will be posting regular updates.
Wildlife & Educational Garden Design
Early in 2017 we were appointed by Brogdale National Fruit Collection in Faversham, Kent to create a wildlife and educational garden, which would help engage both young and older minds with how gardens can maintain and increase wildlife that is in decline in many of our towns, cities and villages.
Demonstrating how nature can work with gardens in preventing pests and diseases, and an ecological approach to gardens by feeding birds, hedgehogs and of course us with a working and interactive 'Edible Garden'.
We were delighted to be involved in
such a project that will help inspire anyone who visits the garden at Brogdale.
Contemporay Garden Design with a Traditional Twist in The Surrey Hills
We were appointed by a client at a property on the
edge of the Surrey Hills who wanted a contemporary garden with a traditional
edge. The garden is long and on a slope, therefore the area would need
to be carefully designed with terraces to allow areas of level ground to maximise the space availble.
With the garden being long the design could gradually fade from the contemporary
aspect immediately at the rear of the house to a more traditional garden at the
far end using wild flowers, fruit trees and a vantage point to look back and
take in the garden from a softer view. The main view is concentrated on a line central
to the bi-folding doors within the kitchen where the client spends a great deal
of time and can look out right through to the soft trees in the distance.
Traditional Walled Garden in the Heart of Kent
In the heart of Kent we found an incredible old walled garden belonging to a manor house.
This garden was historically a traditional styled walled garden, and although there is not a great deal known about the plants or even vegetables that were grown here, the previous owners had installed a swimming pool.
Our clients were inspired to return the back to its original use, and appointed Wonderful Gardens to create a garden of colour, fragrance and structure that would bring joy, inspiration, peace and refuge and relaxation, together with a garden that could be used cut cutting flowers from spring until late autumn.
