Cottage Garden Design Swindon, Wiltshire 

The clients had just purchased a new build property and wanted  private, tranquil cottage style garden to relax in and enjoy that would also attract and nurture wildlife.  The design focused on providing privacy from the surrounding properties and a sense of enclosure so the clients could enjoy their garden in privacy.  Soft curves allowed plenty of room for luxuriant planting, a good size family patio and a lawn with a cobble pathway leading to a sheltered secluded seating area under a pergola.  A flowing bird bath water feature provided the gentle sound and movement of water.  The brick walls of the garden and house were softened with planting and the use of the soft tones of natural sandstone helped to tone down the dominance of the brick.  The bright colour palette of the planting was designed to provide colour and interest throughout the year with a mix of flowering perennials and evergreens.  The flowing water and flowers also quickly attracted insects and birds to the garden providing not only a haven for the clients but also for wildlife.

From the client……Jill was a pleasure to work with to achieve our garden design for a new build property.  From the onset Jill took the time to understand what we liked and didn’t like in garden layout, colours and plants.  Jill was very knowledgeable and gave us confidence in her ability to design something that would suit our lifestyle.  We had a series of meetings which resulted in a beautiful drawing of the garden design and a comprehensive index of plants.  Jill also came back approximately 12 months after the garden was completed to advise on plant aftercare.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Jill and the team she works with.  Suzanne, cottage garden design Swindon, Wiltshire.
