Large Family Garden in Little Chalfont
A complete revamp of front, side and rear spaces, creating an inviting year round family garden.
The clients approached Chiltern Garden Design with a complete blank canvas. Except for two giant trees in the side garden, there was nothing of interest to draw anyone to spend time in their outside spaces.
Our creative design proposal transforms the front garden from a bleak walkway across bare lawn to the parking area, into an inviting and intriguing space in its own right, creating the perfect setting for this impressive house and a joy to walk through. The driveway entrance was moved to create more privacy and space to park and turn, with new automated hardwood gates and brick and flint walling to create a smart and private entrance.
The rear garden has become a more lovely space to spend time in, with lawn for family time and play, a sunken seating area with a firetable and comfy sofas for entertaining friends and family into the evening, and a neat little kitchen garden tucked away in a sunny spot near the kitchen.
The side garden becomes an interesting space on its own, for parties to spill out from the formal living room french windows, to a cosy coffee or drinks corner, overlooking soft and delicate planting. A mini-orchard for the family to enjoy picking their own fruit, and a playful abstract sculptural ‘dragon’ planting design adds fun and intrigue to the remaining garden spaces.
"We have hugely enjoyed working with Sam and are looking forward to continuing to do so. The garden is fabulous, far better than we could have hoped. We are very lucky to have found Sam and would not hesitate to recommend Chiltern Garden Design to anyone looking for the very best they can achieve for their garden."
