Having collaborated effectively with Andrew over many years, The Garden Company was delighted to be selected to build this interesting – and challenging – garden.
The landscaping team applied their craftmanship and knowhow to construct: a curved paddlestone wall. together with trellis over foldback doors, separating layers of planting and a living wall; and high planters (3-5.5 m high) to allow for more layers of planting, creating the perception that the planters were at the higher level.
The softscaping included planting bonsai Pinus banksiana to reach Into the space. Further bonsai pines were used on the roof terrace and a vertical slate waterfall was installed to good effect.
A wave of pleached Hornbeam was used to connect the upper and lower garden. The clients were delighted with the end-result and the opportunity it created for their young children to play safely.
On awarding a Principal BALI Award for Design Excellence to this project, the judges singled out the finesse applied to bring to life such a complex scheme. A Principal Award is given where a project demonstrates an exceptional level of craft skills, exceptional client satisfaction, often a high degree of difficulty has been presented and yet still the scheme has been executed to a high level of quality. In summary, this garden was considered by the judges to have the ‘wow factor’.
