The brief for this family garden in Harpenden was to introduce some interest into what was little more than a vast expanse of lawn. We were essentially given free rein, however there were a few features the clients wanted incorporated into the design.
Having seen the circular seating area we had built in Redbourn they wanted something similar, a herb wheel and water feature were also a requirement, subtlety being key.
Since the plot was long and straight we suggested introducing flowing curves along the borders to be planted with an array of small trees, shrubs and perennials.
Drawing visitors to the new seating area, an arching path would mirror the curvaceous planting scheme.
