Country Garden Pond & Pergola, Burrelton

This project took place in a large mature country garden.

Designing a country garden

Consultation & Concept

The large mature garden was just under half an acre and laid mainly to grass.

The client wanted to remove about a quarter of the grass to make the garden more interesting.

Other requirements were a seating area and pergola, plants and trees to add height and for screening purposes. A pond was also being considered.

Following initial discussions, samples of various materials were considered for practicality and style, and a drawing produced to help client visualise the space.

Completed Garden Project

The garden now has a beautiful new seating area, perfectly framed by the raised planters and pergola.

The formation of the wildlife pond with beach and planting perfectly complements the peaceful setting.

Carefully chosen planting will provide year-round interest in the borders, planters and beach area.

The white barked Himalayan birch trees add height and provide attractive screening in front of the shed.

The client is delighted with the transformation of the garden and has received many compliments from friends and neighbours.
