Concrete to Green Space using Lattice & Flower Beds for Plants
Category: Flower Bed Design
Garden Design Project: FBDOSS001
This project shows how even a Concrete backyard can be turned into a lush Green Space.
With such a small area, the client also wanted us to create a sense of Space and make the most of the garden she had. As this is overlooked by other maisonettes, she also wanted a sense of privacy from neighbours.
We had thought of a number of different methods to try and get Plants into the garden, including digging out the Concrete and completely reinvigorating the soil underneath.
The lack of privacy for this garden was overcome with a simple Trellis fencing. We used this as the client didnt want to feel claustrophobic with solid fences or high Walls. Instead the Lattice effect will allow the evergreen shrubs and climbers to eventually cover the boundaries and still give the sense privacy from neighbours in this very communal area.
We used Raised Beds at various heights to allow The Garden to receive much needed planting. Seating and storage is created by a wooden box seat where the client can store all of her gardening equipment and accessories. The clients' personality and style is reflected through the use of bright green paint and white rendered surfaces.
