Cobham Surrey Town Garden Design
This Cobham garden was in need of some modernisation to fit in with the youthful clients and high quality of interior design. The main area of concern was a dominating tired large brick wall that dissected the garden in half making the upper level entirely unusable and impractical.
The wall was a necessary feature of the garden as it retained a huge amount of ground and although dated it was structurally. The solution was to render the wall in a light grey colour and cap with bespoke sawn coping stones injecting the garden with sleek, contemporary style. Large steps create a physical and visual link to the upper level where a new lawn and oval hardwood deck have been constructed. The wall dictated the angles within the garden, which was embraced resulting in a very dynamic, original garden exuding individuality and style. Bespoke clay planters put the finishing touches to the patio and a tailor made lighting scheme allows the garden to be enjoyed during the darker hours of the day. Within the front garden a large welcome area paved in large 1m, beige sawn York stone really gives the house a sense of arrival.
Simplicity was the key with the planting scheme throughout the front and rear garden. Topiary yew balls, Amelanchier and Cupressus sempervirens provide form and structure with herbaceous perennials and alliums injecting a tapestry of colour from spring through to late autumn.
