A very good friend of mine recently asked me to redesign a garden for his buy to let property in Shropshire. As the house was a buy to let, the investment in the garden needed to be minimal yet the outcome needed to be a well thought out design that would allow easy maintenance but provide a haven for a potential young renting family. Good use of space was essential as well as little if no construction work. Some potential eyesores needed to be hidden too. The design was ecstatically received and the budget accommodated. You don't have to spend thousands to have a great garden !
I recently completed a design for a client in South East London - very exciting ! It involved redesigning the layout of his rear garden to remain in keeping with the house's Edwardian style. There were a few issues or consider, not least how the property adjoined neighbouring properties and the request by the owner to keep a tall existing tree. The design still has to be implemented but this is due to happen in the spring of 2015. I must admit, I'm looking forward to finishing off its implementation.
