This large, sloped garden belongs to a beautiful contemporary house on an exclusive road in Otford, near Sevenoaks in Kent. The garden was a complete blank canvas and the client’s brief was to design and build a world-class acer garden set against an immaculate background with an entertainment area at the top of the garden overlooking the house below.
We first planted mature yew hedging at the boundaries and installed cedar Venetian screening along the back boundary. This was followed by two cascading circular Millboard decks that were carved into the hill and bordered by log rolls stained to match the deck, a nod to the Japanese garden style the client enjoys. In order to create instant impact, we planted an exclusive selection of Japanese acers of all colours and larger specimen trees. The whole garden was fitted with premium artificial lawn and we installed the outdoor furniture, a mains-gas powered fire bowl, large cantilever patio heater and decorative lighting.
