The original garden felt dated and was dominated by large overgrown evergreen shrubs that made the garden feel smaller. Although it is a sunny garden the space for outdoor entertaining and dining was limited and paving was in need of replacement. Heartwood Garden Design created a large contemporary front driveway area in resin bound gravel with sawn granite setts. Low maintenance planting creates summer colour and interest a low yew hedge has created some much needed enclosure and privacy from the road on this quite wide plot. In the back garden the large centralised lawn is retained as space for family games and play and a small area of astroturf was added to create year round access to the play frame. A small vegetable garden was also added along with a beautiful porcelain patio and stepping stones leading to a smaller more secluded second patio in the corner of the garden. A beautiful existing mature apple tree has been retained as the key focal point of the garden and all other areas of the garden were replaced with a range of colourful plants and trees.
The garden was build by local landscaping team Armstrong Landscapes based at Hertfordshire Garden Centre.
