Love Island Style Garden Glow Up

The Brief;

  • Low Maintenance

  • Modern and Contemporary

  • Bespoke

  • Love Island Style

This 400 year old cottage was surrounded by dull concrete and tired planting areas, with a sloped lawn and very little character, our client contacted us to help change that. We designed this garden with the cottage at the heart of our all our material choices, and so we chose a honey limestone and block to match the stone of the old cottage. We used sleepers to create raised borders for easy maintenance and implemented circles and curves within the hard landscaping to add interest and soften the paving. Paying attention to the details, we built a raised bed out of mixed size stone, a water feature in homage to the cottages' previous well, and even reclaimed the original salt glazed drains. A beautiful property such as this, deserved a garden and driveway that was just as beautiful.

"I have just had my garden redesigned and built by Larissa James Landscaping and I am absolutely delighted with what they have done. I live in an old stone house and the garden they designed complements the style of the property, with the addition of some contemporary features that give it the wow factor. Their care and attention to detail was first class and they went the extra mile for me on a number of occasions to give me exactly what I wanted. I was very nervous about having such a big project done, but I didn't need to be. I didn't want them to go! If you are looking for landscape gardeners who put the customer first and really care about what they do, this is the company you should choose." - Ms Gustard
