Completed in early 2020, this residential Esher garden involved the complete re-design of the front and rear gardens of this relatively new build property. Previously constructed on very degraded soil with the existing plants showing signs of poor health, the existing garden required a complete overhaul to allow the garden to thrive and to make a natural space for the new swimming pool. A series of pathways and terraces connect the upper and lower garden areas, with clipped hedging, topiary and mature trees to add an overall sense of depth to the garden. Keys vistas were created from the house on to the more formal upper garden, with the inclusion of planted gravel areas and boundary screening to allow privacy at both ground and first floors.
The lower garden contains the renovated existing pool house, new sun deck, swimming pool and bespoke hot tub, positioned for maximum privacy and sunshine. Wide areas of planting have been created to form a meadow like surround to the pool - planted in summer 2019 these areas are currently establishing and we are looking forward to seeing the planting fill out next spring/summer.
