A garden design for a new build property in Steeton, near Skipton. This was a blank canvas, quite literally – turf and a few paving flags – so typical of new built homes.
The clients, a young professional couple, wanted to create their dream garden, to enjoy for years to come. Looking to create an informal / cottagey look that would blend with their more modern house, their wish list included a good sized seating / dining area, a generous lawn, somewhere to grow fruit & veg and softening overlooking properties.
The planting design used elements with strong structure (eg pleached purple beech and sections of yew hedging) to define the various spaces. The planting palette used combinations which would do well in the different microclimates within the garden, whilst also using repeated plants to unify the whole garden.
