New Build Courtyard Garden

New Build Courtyard Case Study | Arcadia Garden Design Hand Drawing Header

This small end terrace new build in North Wales provided a tricky challenge – maximising the usable space whilst embracing the client’s love of nature and the environment.

The more traditionally planted beds with butterfly and bee attracting species were located along garden boundaries, with a bespoke timber pergola creating a shaded seating area at the end of the garden, covered by vines and jasmine.

The use of a wildflower meadow turf as opposed to a standard lawn turf provides a refuge and food source for bees, butterflies and insects as well as creating a visual spectacle in spring and summer!

The Riverside Gardens

Arcadia Blog | Riverside Gardens | Featured

This beautiful riverside property in Oxfordshire is currently undergoing a comprehensive internal and external refurbishment.

Detailed Garden Design and Planting Plans have been created for both the East and West Gardens – linked together by rustic riverside deck across the rear of the property.

The spaces and choice of materials reflect and compliment the internal spaces of the property and continue the theatrical theme of the interior design.

I love how this project has matured into a warm and welcoming outdoor space.

The Cotswold Homestead

This impressive new build Cotswold Stone residence was constructed within the grounds of an old 1920’s house with several acres of overgrown gardens and woodland.

Detailed Landscape Design and Planting Plans were created in response to Landscape Conditions requested by the Local Authority and in order to transform the site into a small country estate complete with walled garden, herbaceous borders and arboretum.

The Walled Garden

Arcadia Blog - The Old Rectory - Featured 2

This beautiful walled garden located in the North East of England was transformed from an overgrown and neglected space into a series of garden spaces - incorporating both highly traditional and contemporary areas to compliment the internal spaces of the property.
The design layout also incorporated specific locations for the installation of garden sculpture, the picturesque summerhouse and bespoke play equipment.
