Contemporary garden design

Contemporary Redesign, Edinburgh

Our clients asked us to modernise their fairly large flat garden in a contemporary design.

Consultation & Concept

The grass in the existing garden had been damaged by the client’s pet labradors.

The brief was to create a a modern contemporary design that would be easy to maintain and would provide a practical area for the dogs.

The client asked us to use decking, gravel and artificial turf in the design and to include some garden lighting.

Garden Features

A large quartz gravel circle was laid with a standing stone water feature, beach pebbles and specimen planting at the centre. Artificial lawn was laid around the gravel to provide lush green dog friendly areas.

A softwood deck was constructed outside the patio doors to provide a seating and entertaining area.

A large raised planter was built along the rear fence line using wooden sleepers.

Completed Project

The use of the pale gravel circle with beach pebbles, water feature and lighting gave the garden the contemporary feel that the client was looking for whilst the raised beds provided large areas for colourful planting to soften the space.

The artificial lawn provides a practical low maintenance alternative to traditional turf that will withstand attention from the dogs.

Pots have been used along the front of the deck to house colour co-ordinated specimen plants along with lighting stakes.

We found Gardens Galore to be an excellent company to deal with from the initial approach to completion of the project. The workforce were very professional, friendly and polite, working in an organised manner with attention paid to maintaining a clean and tidy site at all times. The project was completed to a very high standard and within the timescale estimated at the outset and we are very pleased with the outcome. Overall the job was value for money with no negative experiences.
