New Build Garden Design
We are delighted to present this impressive contemporary new build garden design in our portfolio. Our clients approached us at the planning stage of their beautiful new house which they were having built in Harpenden.
Our brief was to create an elegant outdoor space to compliment their house. Additionally, our clients wanted their new garden design to be contemporary in style, whilst tying in seamlessly with more traditional materials.
The New Build Garden Design
To achieve the balance between contemporary and traditional we designed solid hard landscaping in natural materials and generous, naturalistic planting. For one end of the new sandstone terrace, we designed a long water-rill with bubble fountains. Whilst at the other end, we placed four roof-trained Liquidambar trees with a dining area beside them. As a result, we created an intimate space for outside entertaining, with views back to the water-feature. We also included expansive sawn sandstone steps, flanked with raised flower-beds and leading down to a large formal lawn.
We designed long flower-borders to run the perimeter of the lawn, with grass paths creating vistas towards the informal rear of the garden. Our client commissioned a bespoke slate James Parker sculpture, which draws the eye to the rear of the garden. Also at the end of the garden, we placed a group of Birch trees which soften the back drop of evergreen trees. In addition, we created generously planted borders which exude colour and vibrancy.
By creating generous borders and interesting focal points, we have created a really spectacular garden!
