An Unusually Shaped Front Garden Transformed with a Creative Design
- Front Garden
- Sandstone Paving, Various Gravels, Artificial Lawn
Our Nottinghamshire-based clients needed to revamp their front garden. The area had been laid to lawn when their house was built, and they were struggling to maintain it. The front garden although large, the awkwardly shaped corner plot was uninspiring and unwelcoming.
Practicality and creative design are paramount when designing a front garden. The widening of the drive allows two cars to park side by side. Free-flow shapes extend from the driveway and form an attractive yet super low maintenance space.
Sweeping pathways around a new artificial lawn area, flowing through the garden sections off different areas to add texture. Fluid lines and racked off paving breaks up flower beds and gravel areas add interest. All-year-round planting wraps around the paved pathways and softens the gravels. Height created from rectangular pergolas, adds three-dimension to the space, and frames the view down the garden.
A bespoke feature windmill takes centre stage, slightly raised in a new circular platform built using rumbled key kerbs. A stone birdbath adds a second focal point at the bottom of the garden, nestled amongst the planting.
A once unexciting space has been transformed into a garden to be proud of, giving the best first impression to welcome family and friends. The buff tones in the landscaping contrast beautifully against the house, and the planting brings form in the winter and colour all throughout the year.
