Project Brief

This low maintenance garden design project was carried out for a client in Great Notley, Essex. The brief was to create areas to enjoy the garden at different times of the day and a large enough space to entertain family and friends during the warmer months of the year.

The garden was completely stripped out with trees being removed, and landscaping was carried out including the installing of new fencing and paving, a water feature, raised beds, pergola, archway and a stunning planting scheme.

The garden took several months to construct and upon completion began the really hard work of getting the sticky, clay Essex soil right so planting could commence. A striking planting scheme was installed which included underplanting using tulips and alliums. The beds were then Strulched to suppress weeds.

Despite the beautiful planting scheme, this is actually a reasonably low maintenance garden design project. This is due to the plants chosen for this and the Strulch applied.

The garden in Great Notley is regularly maintained by myself and my team and we are very proud of it.

Despite my wife and I having had a garden for years our knowledge of gardening was frankly basic. We decided to invest in a new garden starting from scratch, including the removal of trees, scruffy old decking and a collection of past-their-prime plants – right back to bare earth in fact.
