"Big ideas for small gardens"
Cumin Place, Edinburgh
A typical Georgian villa on the south side of Edinburgh and set
within a west-facing walled garden. The client inherited a garden
which, we could see, had been lovingly tended to in the past but
was now somewhat overgrown.
The brief was to tidy up the sweeping border and create a sunny
seating area near the house.
Trees and shrubs were thinned out where necessary, herbaceous
plants lifted and divided and some additions made to provide
contrast of foliage colour and year round interest.
Natural limestone was used for the patio, the blue/grey colouring
complimenting the modern glass extension.
A range of teak furniture added the finishing touch.
St Baldreds Road, North Berwick
The retired clients had sold off part of their large garden for development. A new boundary wall was built and
the existing crumbling retaining walls, crazy-paved patio and steps replaced.
The new layout was set at an angle to the house increasing the feeling of depth and to create vistas across
Planting is still in progress.
A shady path is enhanced by
'stained glass' trellis panels
