A very important part of designing a garden is the attention to often imperceptible details that personalise the garden space.   You can add a unique personality to your garden that speaks of quality and style by using skilled craftsmen and experienced designers.

A Secure Gate with Style

 

This pretty side gate replaced a previous trellis construction. A blacksmith was commissioned to make the gate. The unusual swirls of uncoiling circles make an unique gate that provides a view through whilst not compromising security.

The herringbone brick panel in front of the gate acts as a rug before the entrance.

 

A Quiet Corner

 

Who doesn't enjoy a quiet space in the garden to sit and relax? This bench was hand crafted by wood artist Lucy Smith for the gold medal winning Shell Garden I exhibited at Hampton Court.  There is real luxury of contrast in the textures of the green oak base and the polished seat.  A piece of garden furniture like this will bring pleasure for years to come

The Murmur of Water

 

Using a waterball that works on water recycled through a tank is a simple and safe way of introducing water into a garden without lots of maintenance work.

In this case it had the added advantage of acting as a filter to the noise of a nearby road.

 

A Water Wall

This water wall acts as a focal point from the conservatory and a secluded courtyard seating area.  It also helps to dampen the low hum of nearby road noise.

 

A Well-positioned Ornament

 

This conch shell has the added bonus of being an attractive shape and texture whilst also being the source of the water falling into the rill below at the gold medal winning 'Shell garden' at Hampton Court.

 

A Studded Oak Gate

 

A garden entrance can be the first impression of the home and the garden . This gate is crafted of green oak and iron studs.  The whole ambience of the garden can be lifted by the appropriate use of quality crafted detail be it a sculpture, or a functional fitting as in this gate.

An Artisan Gate

 

A unique side entrance that makes an impact as you look through the artisan gate to the lovely slate vase

Joe Smith’s Vase

 

A beautiful unique dry stone vase built in Cumbrian slate by stone mason Joe Smith adds a wonderful textural feel to this garden space.
