No need to wait 20 years. With mature planting your dream garden is instant.
This newly built family home was finished with only a basic landscaping and planting effort. A planned new build next door started to raise privacy concerns for the owners. The property owners inputs and ideas were represented visually through a comprehensive design and mood boards.
To address the privacy concern, we sourced a selection of large specimen trees and plants from Europe to not only block out views of neighbouring properties but also to create an interesting space with character and confidence.
The trees were delivered on escorted low loader truck trailers from Belgium, requiring specialist lifting equipment. Additional hard landscaping was also added for access through the new garden. Having found that the soil in the area was composed of a heavy marl clay and therefore had very poor drainage, we opted to replace it. Additionally, we installed a new high percolation lawn with a comprehensive drainage system that is pumped out into the main drainage.
The result was an instantly mature, healthy garden full of specimen trees that looked like they had been there for years.
