The Print Maker’s Garden

  • “The integrated seat immerses you in the planting”

    “The integrated seating takes advantage of the sun’s position, and anybody in the garden can catch the sunshine throughout the day”

    Garden Design

    The client’s brief was to design and build a private garden space. The client wanted to use the space as somewhere to be creative and also as an area to relax. The garden’s integrated seating takes advantage of the sun’s position, and anybody in the garden can catch the sunshine throughout the day.

    Design and Build

    Steep sloping gardens present some challenges to the design and to the build. However these can be turned to your advantage. The integrated seat immerses you in the planting and it creates a rich and close up experience of the plants.
    The building was positioned to face away from the house again to create a separate, inward looking space, increasing the sense of privacy.

    Planting Philosophy

    The foliage includes silvers, mid-greens and verdigris. The idea is that these plants and their colours bounce the sunlight around the garden, punctuating the scene with their mauve and purple flowers. Many planting schemes can include warm yellows and hot reds, but these were put aside in favour of the cooler shades in order to maintain a sense of freshness and light.
