Liz and Martins Patio Garden
Liz and Martins garden is small but now perfectly formed. The brief was to create a patio garden where they can sit party and relax into the night after a hard days work!!
A circular theme was designed throughout with circular lawns accessed by crescent shaped pathways and reflected by flower circles that stand proud and lead you through the garden spaces. Summerhouse, potting shed and boulder trickling water feature surrounded by a shingle beach; plus woodland area with cool fernery and planting that gives all year round interest and a sense of style.
As a professional and busy couple Alison and Darren commissioned Darren Rudge to bring some contemporary charisma to their rear garden for them to relax and enjoy this space. The existing site was overwhelmed with mature trees and shrubs and a large turf area that was generally unfriendly and uninviting.
The Kelays are a couple that wanted to take the clean lines and contemporary style of their home into their garden space. As busy professionals the brief given was to provide an area to entertain, relax and enjoy urban living; with secluded areas where they can sit quietly.
A design has been created that gives a contemporary feel and includes a number of areas to sit a relax in this space.
Firstly an open pergola links the house to the garden and purple rustic poles draw you through the space to a circular patio with a reclaimed church bench to sit and relax.
After a complete life as a family garden; now the children have flow the nest it was time for a revamp.
This design was built on three levels; level 1 the lower level is paved and sweep clean; widened for additional access. Level 2 is a family patio but now for large family parties that include the grand children.
Stourbridge couple Liz and Steve commissioned Darren Rudge to bring some classical styling to their small but drab courtyard. Overpowering trees and shrubs were removed and tall double skinned surrounding walls built giving a walled garden feel in classical red brickwork.
Darren Rudge was asked to create a garden area for a family with older children.
The client particularly wanted the garden to reflect sustainability issues and to use as much as possible reclaimed or recycled materials, plus to have a contemporary feel.
An elderly couple in their mid 80's who have been married for 60 years felt it was time to have a space where they could relax; with the brief being to create a space that was 'classical but contemporary'.
A circular theme was used in this garden to give movement and flow with ascending raised beds for ease of maintenance; constructed in the classical red brick with a Staffordshire blue coping.
