sutton garden design

The owners of this garden in Sutton wanted a garden designed to compliment their new extension that was practical for their children and dogs to play in.

A sandstone patio that wraps around the house has been created offering plenty of space for entertaining with an oak pergola which will eventually be smothered with climbers creating a focal point and a shady place to sit.  The retaining wall has enabled the large lawn to be levelled making it a more practical space for play

A curving brick path disappears through a mid height, gently curving hedge which conceals the trampoline and shed beyond.

Planting softens the new paved area surrounding the summer house and the owners’ metal arbour has been placed on a paved circle and surrounded with planting.

Clipped evergreen shrubs and hedges are used to reinforce the layout of the garden and offer form throughout the year. Flowering shrubs, grasses and perennials using a palette of mainly purples and pinks add colour and movement and bring the whole look together.
