Wiltshire Terrace with Pool:
 
We are really excited to be redesigning this country garden in Wiltshire, focussing initially on the upper terrace with its irregular shaped swimming pool.  
 
The brief was to create a relaxing space that compliments the style of the house and sits well within the surrounding countryside.
 
The design breaks up the existing expanse of paving, creating separate areas for dinning and relaxing, separated by large planting beds which provide structure and colour.
 
A mixture of limestone, clay pavers and gravel add different textures and create the Dutch style that the clients were looking for.

Grade II* Listed Garden:
  
We are honoured to have been chosen to create the master plan for this amazing 5 acre listed garden in the South East of England. Originally designed in the mid nineteenth century, the garden is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing place with impressive views across the surrounding countryside.
 
Extensive research is being carried out to ensure that renovations and additions to the garden are in keeping with the original design intention, especially with regards to the planting pallet, materials used and vistas that are re-established.
 
Whilst bringing the garden back to its original state the clients also want the garden to be fully enjoyed as a family retreat and a space where guests can be entertained and escape from the real world for a few days.

Large Family Garden:
 
John Ward Garden & Landscape Design has been appointed to create the design for this large family garden in North London.
 
This design for this challenging, sloping site will include a mixture of sinuous curves and strong geometry to provide a contemporary yet welcoming feel. The natural slope of the garden is maintained wherever possible with several terraces that create usable space for outdoor cooking, dinning, relaxing and entertaining.
 
A border of multi-stemmed trees, under-planted with Hydrangea ‘Annabelle’ will create a stunning feature close to the house while perennial borders and a wildflower meadow will create a more naturalistic feel further into the garden.

Front Garden With Kerb Appeal:
   
We are pleased to have been appointed to transform this overgrown front garden in Shepherds Bush into a stylish yet practical space that will have loads of kerb appeal.
 
The house was recently refurbished and extended to a very high standard with polished concrete floors throughout. The concrete pavers will mirror the interior but will be offset by the use of Dutch clay pavers and a gravel surround. Bi-fold electric gates provide access to a small parking area and matching slatted fencing will give a contemporary feel. Pockets of lush planting will soften the space and make it feel very welcoming.

Sloping Garden in Forest Hill:
 
Many centuries ago this area of London was covered in ancient forests, and that coupled with the client’s love of the natural world was the inspiration for designing a garden that recreates the atmosphere of ‘the great outdoors’ in this small urban environment.

The narrow, sloping site uses steps to link individual areas for dinning, relaxing, for the children to play and for camp fires under the night sky.   The design works for the whole family with areas to relax and entertain, while creating a sense of adventure whenever you step outside.

A Sussex Dower House:
 
This 6.5 acre sloping site sits in a stretch of green belt land with expansive views across the Sussex countryside.  Unfortunately, a large housing estate planned for the area threatens the views so a new shelter belt was needed to shield the property while retaining some of views beyond.
  
The design ensures that differing styles, functions and moods worked together seamlessly to create a garden that exceeded the client’s need for an intimate family space but was also an impressive venue in which to host and entertain business associates.
 
The project was shortlisted for the Society of Garden Designers Awards 2015.
