[DESIGN SHOW 25] Sloping, wide garden design plan ideas


Wide, Sloping Garden Design Concept Plan Ideas

In this episode, professional, international garden designer Rachel Mathews will show how she designed a wide, shallow client garden with lots of changes in level.

As you’ll see in the video, the design the landscaping company came up with, wasn’t making the best use of space within the garden or tackling the slope well.

Creating a garden design that flows

It’s important to remember that a garden is a whole entity, not a series of unrelated parts. Knowing this will really help when it comes to creating a design that works seamlessly.

Creative changes in level for sloping gardens

Just because a level change is in a certain place in the garden, doesn’t mean it has to stay there when you landscape your garden. Adjusting the shape and position of the level change can have a dramatic impact on the final look and feel of your design, as Rachel demonstrates in the vide.

Would you like Rachel to design your garden?

Fibrestone Planter Project

Fibrestone Planter Project

Today we received an image from Ground Level Works in London who had used our new range of fibrestone planters in a project at the Bank of Friendship Pub in Highbury, London.

The colour of the grey, almost concrete, finish of the fibrestone planter looks stunning in comparison to the earthy colours of the plants. Using multiple plants in one container also works well, with complementing hues.

These grey fibrestone planters make a bold statement, which offers an option for design and architectural planting. Contemporary looking, these are ideal for restaurants, hotels and new developments as well as in domestic settings. This type of planter can also be used to create a privacy barrier as they are ideal of planting tall plants such as bamboos or tall grasses.

Sleek, modern, lightweight and extremely durable, these fibrestone planters are a great addition to any garden Tough and robust, they are easy to move and are suitable for all weather conditions.

We love seeing our products being used in such an impressive way, one which would be easily recreated in your business or garden at home. Available online in our store today.
