This project was to create a modern garden for a professional client in Chesham to suit their wide range of interests. From the customer’s comments, the design meets the brief and beyond.
The creation is now completed and meets their desires to provide calm, relaxing areas with a provision of two modern garden water features near the house and red focal points throughout the site.
The Chesham garden is over an acre in size, so the design is to entice its visitor towards the entertaining area beyond the patio areas near the house. The emphasis is for this section to provide a children’s tree-house and somewhere for the adults to sit and chat around the Firepit. Natural calibrated stone is being used for the house patio section with a cascade water feature within the patio steps plus a rectangular feature with underwater lighting before it’s the backdrop of red pillars.
A wide pathway takes a person to a solid red focal point wall, with an up lighter to highlight an individual Acer Palmatum tree, viewed from the wall’s porthole. The person is then enticed to go follow the pathway to the entertaining and children’s activity area.
Large shrub borders will provide privacy and all year round interest without a huge maintenance effort.
The 3D illustration shows one part of the garden of how the garden will actually look when it is fully constructed.
Ken has been intuitive and instinctively understood our needs, wants and expectations. He has worked tirelessly, gone above and beyond duty to facilitate the enhancements and improvements within the garden of our new home. His knowledge, expertise, attention to detail is combined with a passion for both hard and soft garden design. He has sourced and introduced us to landscapers and fabricators that he felt were suitable. He has also helped to select the companies most able to complete the project to a required standard.
Ken is a rare breed in that he is able to create beauty but also combine this with practically in a way that very few people are able or willing to do. We cannot recommend him highly enough!
