Garden Design in Brighton-Before and After

/, Transformations/Garden Design in Brighton-Before and After

A while back this space apparently used to be Lord Sackville’s tennis courts.
(Sackville of Sackville Rd) . Then it became a neglected suburban garden full of Bay trees.

My clients wanted their garden to be a social space both for adults and children, with lots of colour yet low on maintenance.

We designed the seating area around a Corten Steel fire pit with lovely golden Cedar wood to match the house and the Summer house. We decided on a deep grey to offset both the wood and the greenery. Two pendulous Birch trees give atmosphere and a third dimension to the area without obscuring light.

We used Corten steel edging of the lawn to link the whole garden together.

Planting around the seating area has a ‘mound’ theme of Pittisporum Tom thumb and Pittisporum Golf Balls with taller more languid planting bursting through like Fennel, Crocosmia Red Devil, Phlomis italics, Stipa gigantic and Lobelia Queen Victoria.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
