Hertfordshire Contemporary Garden
This design for a beautiful brick and flint former almshouse in Hertfordshire developed proposals for both the front and back garden, both large areas but designed to have a different character. The front garden is designed to include elements of a traditional historic garden and features elements including a granite sett edged gravel drive, yorkstone paving, basketweave brickwork and strong structural planting elements such as yew hedging and a wide central path with yew cushions within gravel. The character of the back garden is completely different and much more contemporary. The design renovated the pool area and created a spacious porcelain patio with with a contempoary pergola, fire pit, outdoor barbeque, hot tub and seating. Steps leading from the patio open up the wider garden area with fruit trees, lawns, wide mixed planted borders and stunning views to the countryside beyond.
"We brought in Heartwood Garden Design once we had planning approval for the changes to our listed propoerty. We wanted to create two distinct styles in the front and back garden and in particularly in the back garden we wanted to create a space that would give us a party garden for outselves, our friends and family. We have veen delighted with the ideas presented and the layout of the garden. It's completely fulfilled our brief and we're looking forward to having it constructed."
