Kingstone Avenue, Steyning

A family garden scheme that maximises the space within the garden to satisfy all requirements by all family members. The lawn is big enough to kick a ball around, there are some raised vegetable beds for fresh home grown produce, a large deck area with rasied seating on the surrounding wall as a sociable space for entertaining, and a home office in the garden too. All surrounded by a soft and informal planting scheme that will look great all year round. The photos taken have been taken in its first season since planting, further shots will be taken over the next few years as the garden matures and fills out further.

“We were a little apprehensive about employing a garden designer – it sounded a bit grand for our relatively small scale project. However we needn’t have worried. Alex put us at ease at our very first meeting. He didn’t appear at all concerned by our seemingly impossible wish-list or our lack of gardening experience. From our discussions around the plants we liked Alex suggested a wide range of varieties which included many of my favourites. Initial designs were reworked until we were completely happy and the planting scheme was agreed. We undertook the hard landscaping ourselves and Alex offered advice around the clearing of the planting areas. Alex and his team prepared and planted the scheme, working incredibly hard through horrible wet conditions. This summer we have enjoyed our wonderful new garden – it’s been exciting to see the plants develop and flower bringing to life the plans and drawings. Alex is very approachable, professional, always willing to offer advice, explain his suggestions and answer any questions. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. We are thrilled with the end result and are looking forward seeing the garden grow in the coming years.”
