Georgian Village

Georgian Village

Large suburban garden, full sun/part shade, adult family.

“It’s a blank canvas; we both like colour and I’d like a large lawn; perhaps a fountain and some raised beds?”

Strong organic framework of connected majestic and intimate spaces, circulation routes, and luxuriant planting beds, where traditional and classical influences are combined, linking the new Georgian style home to the garden. Visually picturesque from different vantage points, where key architectural features, complimentary materials, foliage textures and forms, sculpture, mood lighting, and ornamentation all play important roles.

Key elements:
Granite flag/cobble paving, focal classic temple, granite pergola walk, formal pool and fountain, non-timber deck, putting green, classic sculpture, sweeping paths, large brick faced raised beds, structural and diverse planting displays, specimen trees.
