Contemporary Urban Garden

The clients wanted a new contemporary patio area where they could capture the evening sun, an area for their existing sofas, a new water feature and lighting. They wanted more interest in the garden and easy maintenance.


The garden needed to be designed to create more interest in the garden and to be easy to look after. A new more secluded patio and a new water feature was added to give a more contemporary feel whilst still being practical. The lawn was reshaped for more interest and to add more contemporary planting that will give privacy and seasonal interest throughout the year. Lighting was added to up light the new standard plants along with the water feature.

After searching the internet for garden designers and meeting with 3 of them, I knew on first meeting Audrey that she completely understood our requirements and budget and felt confident we would be happy with the end result.  We have not been disappointed! Audrey was very easy to work with, giving suggestions and advice, whilst listening also to our likes and dislikes too.  The garden design she produced was excellent, as we were able to visualise the end result and with very slight adjustments we were excited to progress.  We now love our garden!  We could have never achieved this by ourselves, we have the correct planting schemes in the correct areas to give us all year round interest.  We are so looking forward to watching our garden grow and develop further in the years to come. We would have no hesitation in recommending Audrey, she provides an excellent service from start to finish.

To answer your question Audrey – yes we are very much enjoying our garden, we are out there day and night, and we have even sat outside under the parasol when raining too!!
