Renovation of Uninviting Front Garden
To completely renovate a tired and
uninviting front garden and driveway by introducing a modern look and opening
up the space to create a show-stopping approach and entrance.
There were some constraints to work to on this
project due to the TPO (Tree Preservation Order) and RPA (Root Protection Area)
on the large silver birch tree. Due to
the RPA of the silver birch, all existing walls had to bereplaced in the same
positions and the paths and drive had to be laid to a specification that
ensured root protection and permeability. Sandstone walling and paving combined
with other similar light-toned materials form the hard landscaping, whilst the
cedar fencing and arches give warmth and height in the garden.
planting scheme of large box balls and hedging with summer flowering perennials
soften the hard lines in the garden.
