Baverstock Gardens
A Garden in Hastings

This garden had a very steep bank with difficult-awkward steps leading up to the house. We completely redesigned the garden by terracing the bank with brick and oak timbered retaining walls to provided a safe, complimentary and user-friendly set of steps up to the house. We also made sure to include wildlife-friendly planting schemes. It was very important to include a pond for the frogs, newts, stickle-back fish, bathing birds, dragonflies, foxes and badgers!

Wildlife Friendly Garden, London

The brief for this London garden was that it be wildlife-friendly but also offer a fun yet practical space for the homeowners. We repurposed many on-site materials. Making sure that storage, a compost area and a place for the washing line was all fitted into the design.

Plants include the lovely Amelanchier and a multi-stem Silver Birch. The Silver Birch alone can support up to 250 species of birds and insects. Other plantings include a mix of evergreen and herbaceous plants. The circular wildlife pond has a crescent-shaped beach area for smaller creatures to use the pond too.

This garden was planted late autumn 2018.
