This has been a great project. Planting now finalised, just need to wait for things to take and grow. Great work by Mark Firmin Garden Landscaping (http://www.mvfirminlandscaping.co.uk/about.html)
The Warmington garden is very near to completion now. Bespoke features always need testing. The rill and bubblejet fountain in this case are both working !
Local firm Minster Paving has used one of my gardens recently constructed in Lechlade to show off how their products can work in a well designed situation. See www.minsterpaving.co.uk/products/standlake-smooth/ the garden with the wooden pergola !
The Northleach garden is practically complete...it just needs final planting and a bespoke summerhouse !
In building gardens it's critical to work with very competent (and talented) people that can execute a plan to the highest detail. Here's Nic Yeoman of Hortis Landscapes constructing a garden in Northleach, Gloucestershire with Steve Harvey of SAH Electrical Ltd. making preparations for lighting.
And here's one being started by Mark Firmin of MV Firmin Garden Landscaping in Warmington, Warwickshire

I wrote this small article for the Cotswold Times to help homeowners think about how they could go about designing and constructing a new garden. I hope it's helpful !
I've actually won an award for one of my designs !! Excellent news ! The garden that won is in Long Compton, Warwickshire and was a delight to create. I'm really pleased !
