Contemporary Garden, Low Coniscliffe

A very well thought out contemporary garden with outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplace, aluminium framed pergolas, built-in bench with led lighting matching the horizontal fencing, pleached trees, raised beds and a beautiful planting scheme.


Large Scale Gardens, Hartburn

A well structured design, oozing with contemporary class. A limited hard landscape palette and soft planting palette separates this garden from most. Patterned porcelain paving distinguishes different useable spaces.


Outdoor Kitchen Garden, Darlington

Complete redesign for this contemporary outdoor kitchen garden in Darlington, using porcelain paving, rendered raised bed with built in floating bench seat, soft low maintenance planting, outdoor kitchen with BBQ, outdoor chalkboard and horizontal slatted fencing.


Formal Gardens, Newcastle

A large front and rear garden project with extensive planting design to a spectacular home. The design made the best use of the changes in level, bringing together a beautiful palette of materials that perfectly complement the house, planting scheme, and lighting.


Coastal Garden, Whitley Bay

A vibrant, uplifting garden transformation with a coastal contemporary atmosphere. The balance of hard landscaping and soft landscaping here are essential. Plants break the lines and soften edges. A water feature, planter and steps in Corten steel add a soft metal finish.


Corbridge Contemporary Garden

Ultra low maintenance front and rear gardens yet with some structural and elegant planting. The design uses geometry to define spaces within the garden, each with a different function. The rendered raised bed offers a sunken backdrop to one sitting area.


Georgian Townhouse, Darlington

A full garden transformation from overgrown unusable space to a balance of contemporary and retained classic features over three terraces. The garden now looks four times larger.


Contemporary Garden, Darlington

Large rendered raised bed which hugs the whole garden with a sunken patio and floating timber bench to the rear. Stepping stone path leads from the decked area through the garden. What was once a new build patch of grass is now a multi functioning garden space.


Victorian Courtyard Garden, Darlington

A small but multi functioning garden. Once an unusable garden now has a large patio with furniture and a small artificial lawn area with ‘L’ shaped seat to enjoy. One feature tree with uplighting for a truly Mediterranean feel.


Courtyard Garden, Durham

A small garden but with lots of height through planting to create dramatic effect. With a built in seat within the porcelain patio and lighting amongst the planting it has a contemporary yet informal planting feel as you walk down the garden.


“The garden is complete, and we could not be more pleased with the result!

We love everything about our new garden”.

‘We couldn’t believe the transformation the team achieved! We now have a family friendly garden which looks great too. The design really makes the most of the space available and the guys on site did a brilliant job bringing Sam’s design to life in what was a very challenging job!” John & Katie
