Saffron Walden

The unique synthesis of Japanese temple essence and Essex field landscape, expressed in this corner of a large private country estate, materialised through close reciprocation with a long-standing client, where a 5-hectare landscape garden was gradually transformed over a decade. By planting a rich matrix of native trees, shrubs and hedges, judiciously interspersed with a selective palette of Chinese, Japanese and Australasian floras, the design thoroughly optimises varying site microclimates, and refines a highly entertaining landscape platform for an exceptional travelling family in their weekend home.

Lake Maggiore

The steep incline, undulating topography and exquisite panoramas over Lake Maggiore distinguish this stately villa and its landscaped grounds. The 15,000-square-foot estate, brainchild of our architect client, was developed privately over five years, and we accompanied each stage of its intricate build in this Brisino location near Milan in Northern Italy. With advanced water recycling, green technologies and diverse wildlife habitats, the 2-acre landscape gardens enveloping the hillside residence imbue the charm of a countryside setting, amid a state-of-the-art lakeside mansion. The culmination of this long-term landscape garden project saw 20,000 plants efficiently dispersed in two weeks, when a 45-degree, gravelly gradient was carpeted with a myriad of acid-loving plants, fruit groves, Maples and Italian Alders, leading to a flower meadow and a grassy ecological filter bed.

Debden Village

The continual exchange of landscape design ideas through divergent modern thinking richly enhances our urban garden projects with rural nuances, and inversely elevates countryside landscape sceneries with inspiring city terrace ambiences. In the Old Barn, situated along the outskirts of Debden Village in North Essex, a series of thirty powder-coated, custom-designed planters accentuates the satellite buildings of a large country mansion, alongside cottage, kitchen and wildlife gardens, a fruit orchard, swimming pool, an indoor sports complex and outdoor tennis courts – elements of a modern country garden – articulated by forward-looking landscape designs.

Whetstone

Our clients' large landscape garden in Whetstone required a sensitive design & construction process to fashion a renewed fluid connection to its half-acre terrain, with diverse conveniences to engage a growing family. Featuring mature native trees, the space was sympathetically regraded by arraying natural stone, enabling sinuous lines to interlink a rectangular back garden into a sprawling green oasis of native flora, where a disused tennis court formerly stood. With a sun deck, sunken trampoline, basketball court, fire pit, meadows and dynamic seasonal cyclicality, this hidden yet rather spectacular, verdant haven in North London sustains not only the owners' profound relationship with their site, but also a much-needed, rejuvenated ecology for native wildlife.
