This was a large detached house in Chislehurst with a sizeable garden which originally lacked character.

Brief:

Our clients had moved to a large detached house with a sizeable garden which unfortunately lacked character, consisting of a typical, rectangular lawn with planting beds down either side.

There was a fairly new sandstone patio next to the house which our clients wished to keep, but apart from that, a big injection of style and interest was required.

 

 

Solution:

In order to draw the eye across the garden, rather than straight to the end (which is what often happens with a rectangular garden), an attractive, sinuous path was constructed in the same natural stone as the patio, curving its way down to a new circular seating area and summerhouse at the bottom of the garden.

The planting beds curve in and out too, creating movement and interest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our client is a keen bee-keeper and nectar-rich plants were chosen to provide a long flowering season for them to feed. 

Planting includes Daphne bholua which bears very fragrant, mauve-pink flowers in February, Ceanothus which has stunning deep blue flowers May – June, pink and lilac Buddleia to flower in mid-summer, and Hebe ‘Midsummer Beauty’ which bears purple flowers right through from July to November.
