Plant lovers’ garden, Hazlemere

Transforming a small garden into a spacious plant-filled paradise

A small garden design that incorporates space for relaxation in dappled sun and shade and space for growing cut flowers as well as floriferous borders and an elegant Victorian style brick base greenhouse for a couple who love pottering in their garden.


A raised deck brings the garden right up close to the house, as the couple have installed new sliding doors across the rear of their property, which lead out to an elegant bespoke cedar pergola, which will be draped with wisteria and star jasmine to create dappled shade as well as scent.

A shady seating area on the other side of the garden is nestled under an existing tree, with views back across lush planting and the lawn to the new greenhouse and pergola.

Project Testimonial

"We thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of working with Sam to imagine, design, build and plant our beautiful new garden. Sam is a talented designer, who took time to really understand our needs and ideas, and to come up with a design that has exceeded our expectations. Sam is always helpful, professional and approachable. She stayed engaged and proactive through the whole process, including working well with our landscapers to ensure the build was delivered to plan. Ours is a relatively small garden but Sam treated the project with the same attention and professionalism that she would for a large commission. I cannot recommend Chiltern Garden Design highly enough."
