Bartholomew Landscaping were appointed as Landscape designers to work very closely with the clients and their design team with a view to creating a very special bespoke garden with references to the art deco movement. The house was completely refurbished, which also included a swimming pool below the garden space provided.
The concept design began with the interlocking of strong shapes echoing art deco patterns, with a stunning teared bronzed rill of water wrapping itself around one side of the garden falling into a bronze curved pool.
The source of the water runs down a drystone wall on which beautiful bronzed fins have been installed above in order to screen the condensing unit for the pool below.
The main terrace is finished and laid in a rhomboid paving pattern with each piece of limestone being individually templated.
The central seating area is constructed of drystone walling with hardwood tapering slatted seating, which surrounds gas mains fed bespoke bronze fire bowl.
Key trees chosen for their all year round interest have been located to anchor certain elements of the design as well as create natural areas for shade. The planting is in the very early stages and will ultimately develop to enhance the space, infilling and softening the stepping stones and hard landscaping generally.
The front garden and driveway consisted of new piers, art deco styled railings with bronze inlays and a very specialised vehicular access gate that retracted around a curve in order to allow independent access via the pedestrian gate at all times.
Our clients stated that we had delivered beyond their expectations and it was an absolute pleasure for us to have worked alongside Studio Indigo and Seacon Ltd.
