Hitchin Family Garden Design

I knew last year had been busy for me but I hadn’t realised that 8 months had gone by since I last blogged!

IMG_7422So, I’m going to post some of my favourite pictures of some recent gardens that I have designed in and around Hitchin.

The brief for this garden was to create a space that would be child friendly, encourage outdoor play and have a naturalistic feel to the planting. The hard landscaping stayed but the garden was completely re-shaped with a new lawn, flower borders and children’s play area.

Behind the shed was an area completely ignored and perfect for the children to play.IMG_7414 I found a tree surgeon who supplied me with stepping stones and climbing logs and we covered the area with play bark.IMG_7412

Tall grasses and bamboo were then planted in this area to give the children a more jungle type effect amongst which to play and have fun. For the remainder of the garden I tried to keep the planting simple, using plants with good foliage and texture such as grasses and ferns. Two of my favourite flowers were used to add summer interest which were Leucanthemum ‘T.E. Killin’ and Echinacea purpurea ‘White Swan’. IMG_7495
