Private Garden, Stowmarket, Suffolk

About This Project

The owners of this property required the remodelling of their front garden to accommodate a new access and parking facilities whilst creating an attractive setting to the front of the house, hidden behind a fabulous, mature Yew hedge. The changes were driven in part, by the need to make good following the removal of a nearby Sycamore tree, that had been condemned by the household insurance company.
This was achieved through widening the access drive, clearance of adjacent vegetation and a low retaining wall. Regraded slopes and no dig construction over other tree roots ensured levels were accommodated for parking of 3 to 5 cars, with careful choice of surface material.
The front garden was transformed from bland grass to a formal Box and Lavender parterre, with gravel surfacing to reduce maintenance and provide new access to the front door.
