Garden Design Highworth, Wiltshire – Testimonial

Garden Design Highworth, Wiltshire – We chose ‘Jill Blackwood Garden Designs’ to design the complete garden for our new house. Jill was a delight to work with throughout the design process, checking the designs with us and suggesting a good mix of plants, shrubs, fruit trees as well as an original layout incorporating steps, pond, archway and fencing, as well as four vegetable beds. Jill arranged or contractors (Steve, Wayne and Liam) who worked thoroughly professionally and did a great job albeit over the winter months when it was cold and wet. We are delighted with the finished product and would definitely recommend Jill to others.

The clients had purchased a new build house in a rural area with a good size garden space.   They required a garden that fitted with the environment of the Wiltshire countryside and blended with their Cotswold stone house.  From a good sized patio area by the house a cobble path leads though flowering borders to a large lawn area surrounded by shrubs and perennials.  A natural pond backed with planting makes a focal point on the lawn.  A step stone path on the lawn leads through an wooden arch to a formal circular herb garden which in turn leads to the vegetable area.  There is a circular patio seating area to rest and refresh, planted with herbs and scented plants to lift the senses.  Buff colour natural stone materials were used to blend the garden with the house bringing unity to the space.  The blue, pink and white pastel shades of the flowering plants gave the space a relaxed, airy feel and texture was added with a variety of leaves and plant forms.  Garden Design Highworth, Wiltshire.
