Front Garden

Front Gardens

Your front garden should be so much more than a car park. Front gardens welcome visitors, ‘set the scene’, and set off the house. They add value to the house and promote a feeling of wellbeing. Practical, smart solutions in keeping with your house and lifestyle – each one as unique as you. Here are a few – email details of your front garden robertsfrier@hotmail.com

Wilmslow property are three stories
An octagonal garden design featuring permeable self compacting driveway, permeable blocks and grass reinforcement. The wisterias on the Wilmslow property are three storeys high imported from Italy.

Reinforced grass - a 'green solution' to front drives where occasional/overflow parking is required
Reinforced grass – a ‘green solution’ to front drives where occasional/overflow parking is required. The blocks are free draining and offer all the benefits of a good looking lawn with the practicalities of a drive. This one was seeded just 7 days ago and will eventually cover the concrete.

Sweeping curves and flowing line are the order of the day in this front garden
Sweeping curves and flowing line are the order of the day in this front garden. The eye is drawn gently down the drive to reveal the frontage of this Richard Harding Watt house. The landscaping is duly understated.

Garden lighting is embedded within the wall and makes a welcome approach
An uneven tarmac driveway has been re-graded – the gentle incline falls away from the road revealing curvaceous dry-stone walls constructed by salvaged stone found on site. Garden lighting is embedded within the wall and makes a welcome approach to the house in the evening.

 

The design shows a sustainable solution with a ‘drive in and out’ and parking for seven cars. The design mixes graceful soft flowing line with clipped formality and vistas. 

  

This new front garden in Halebarns was inaccessible and dominated by a huge tree. Re-cycled materials add a rustic feel and kept the material costs down.

Dynamic flowing line has effectively broadened this long thin driveway. Passerby’s still visit to take pictures of this unusual installation which pleases my client.

The front door is the most important focal point of your house. However, the main entrance to this property was not obvious to visitors, so simple, strong curves have been used to compel visitors irresistibly to the front door.
