Our clients were in the process of moving back into Bury St Edmunds. Having purchased a house that required complete renovation they made the decision to have the garden landscaped before the building work was complete. Previously they had focused solely on their house renovations and the landscaping was always neglected, this time they wanted a luxurious outdoor space. Being keen subscribers to house and home style magazines, they were able to get in touch with us confident that we could deliver a contemporary designer garden.
Having seen our national award winning garden in Cambridge, our clients wanted to follow suit with a contemporary garden design and build. Being rather ‘outdoorsy’ people they wanted spaces to relax, play, entertain and explore.
Taking our inspiration from the symmetry of our clients house, we designed a garden that celebrated the use of straight lines and mirroring. For the most part the garden is perfectly balanced with the pond and water feature footprint mirroring the footprint of the upper level decking and hot tub space. Using clean sharp materials we created contrast in light and dark from the paving to the decking. High end, long lasting materials were essential to complete this beautiful outdoor space. To break up the vast amount of patio on the lower level we floated the patio seamlessly into the hardwood Elondo decking. garden lighting was used to subtly highlight plants and features at night, giving this garden height and depth all day long.
