Garden Landscaping Brief
The Landscaping Godalming Project began with the client approaching us to create a family garden. The brief was a tranquil entertaining space with a covered all-weather area for seating and band rehearsals. Another essential part of the brief was to have a low maintenance garden that required little attention. The contemporary garden design was brought to life with modern materials, including simple grey paving slabs and composite decking.
Garden Landscaping and Construction
Initially, we found a small, overgrown garden with a steep rear boundary. We modified an existing design and proposed tackling the bank with an oak sleeper and steel RSJ retaining wall, creating naturalistic planting tiers. The lower areas feature London Stone Florence Grey Porcelain for contemporary style paving. A Millboard deck (composite material) was laid under a louvred pergola, creating an all-weather space for the family and entertaining guests. Overall, the garden provides the client with a beautiful entertaining area that is low maintenance. The contemporary garden design is sleek and stylish. Its grey palette becomes softer by using the natural retainer wall wood, light shade of composite decking and bursts of floral colours.
Award winning garden
We are proud that the Woodstock Grove landscaping project in Godalming won two gold medals in the 2021 APL Awards (The Association of Professional Landscapers).
