Handsome Harrogate garden

< back to portfolio

This handsome Harrogate garden is wide and shallow and the tricky angled design blurs the boundary making it feel bigger by taking the view lines out into the corners. The terrace is generous in size and the wide copings on the raised beds double as seating. The strong structure and sculptural planting create all year interest. Artworks are placed in the garden that are enhanced by lighting at night. Testimonial Frances We promised that we would write to you to thank you for both designing and project-managing our wonderful new garden. When we first met, we had sought opinions from several other garden designers and the first design you showed us was by far the best we had seen, in fact we did not think it could have been better ...until we saw your second design. The design completely re-worked the outside space in a way in which we could not have conceived; in particular the angular design was innovative and clearly had taken a lot of thought. The crisp angles, set against the choice of materials and planting was the perfect combination of contemporary and traditional. The next step was the budget planning and we have to say that we were fearful that the project would be so beyond our budget that it would be untenable, thankfully we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the estimates and we were grateful that you were able to make suggestions which allowed us to bring the project within our budget without having to compromise the overall look. Creating the garden from the plans, especially given the unusual angles in the design was never going to be a straightforward job and we were grateful that you recommended Thorner Landscapes and Omega electrics to undertake the work. Thanks to them, together with your oversight, the garden evolved in a neat methodical way and we really enjoyed helping with the planting. As you are aware, the kitchen and living space at the back of the house takes the form of a glass extension, hence the outlook is especially important and enhances our ability to enjoy your beautiful design. We are delighted with with the finished project and would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who is considering a similar project. Kind Regards Richard and Dawn
