Step into the heart of Headington, Oxford, where modernity meets family-friendly design in a breathtaking urban garden. In this blog post, we invite you to explore the journey of how we turned this space into a haven for family life and activities, celebrating the fusion of contemporary landscaping and natural beauty.
Urban Garden Bliss: A Space for All
This urban garden isn't just a space; it's a lifestyle. We set out to create an environment where families can flourish, play, and make lasting memories. The result is a space that seamlessly integrates into the urban landscape while providing ample room for various activities.
Contemporary Elegance: Porcelain Tiles and Millboard Decking
One of the defining features of this garden is the use of 1500 x 1000mm porcelain tiles on retaining walls, adding a touch of modern elegance. Smoked Oak Millboard Decking extends an invitation to relax and unwind. Marshalls Blauw Symphony 1200x600mm paving, edged with charcoal Vande Moortel clay pavers, adds structure and character to the garden.
Nature's Embrace: Evergreen and Herbaceous Planting
To soften the modern design, we introduced a harmonious blend of evergreen and herbaceous planting. The garden comes to life with shades of pink, white, and purple, providing a delightful contrast to the contemporary elements.
A Touch of Drama: Bespoke Pergola and Corten Steel Burners
The garden's focal point is a bespoke pergola, finished in sleek black and adorned with Corten steel burners. It's a space that encourages relaxation and brings a touch of drama to the garden.
Balancing Nature and Design: Lush Green Lawn and Shrub Planting
While the hard landscaping captures attention, the garden is balanced by a lush green lawn and shrub planting along the rear boundaries. It's a reminder that a garden should always be in harmony with nature.
