Small Town Garden Design in Guildford Surrey

Water Garden Design near Godalming, Surrey

Although very much a family garden, with the children having reached their teens, it was no longer necessary for the swimming pool to be fenced off and it could now be integrated into the rest of the garden. Lush planting, new paving and a dining area under a pergola were designed around the swimming pool. Views were opened up to the sports lawn and woodland beyond. Central to the design is an oriental water garden, with a traditional style Tea House, situated between the pool area and the house. This now provides a contemplative and relaxing area for my client who was raised in the Far East. Plants here include an Ilex Crenata (topiary cloud tree), Iris ensata and water lilies in the pond. The run down main terrace behind the house was enlarged and given a more elegant feel for entertaining. The front garden and driveway layout was simplified to provide a more stylish approach, along with a formal Box parterre with an all-white, shade tolerant, planting scheme.
