Garden Design, Down Ampney, The Cotswolds

Garden Design Down Ampney – The client’s wanted to develop their front garden as a informal, relaxed area to sit with some privacy from passing pedestrians.  The front garden was a hot, sunny spot  which the clients wanted to enjoy in their leisure time.  Paths were needed to access the front door and the side gate.  The garden was designed with curvlinear shapes to give a soft, relaxed feel and good access without being too formal.  the shapes allowed plenty of space for layers of planting to provide the required screening.  Textured Cotswold colour paving was chosen to blend with the Cotswold style house with flint gravel to give textural contrast.  The buffy colours bring unity to the space giving a light soft feel.  The planting style was a mix of shrubs, perennials and grasses with a vibrant colour pallette helping to liven up the space.  The Cotswold stone provides a light colour backdrop and enhances the colours and textures of the plants.  Some larger shrubs were left on the garden boundaries to maintain some privacy from the neighbours and pedestrians.   Obelisks were added in the central curved border for climbers to add to the screening effect.  Garden Design Down Ampney, Gloucestershire.
