Private residential garden design - South Bucks

Design solutions for a front garden with shared access

What we did

Redesign of a large front garden in a rural location. The key objectives were to re-route an access drive and minimise impact of public right of way through garden to provide a practical yet more private and stylish frontage to house.

Space was retrieved along the front boundary by removing a large tired old Leylandii hedge, retaining a bank and planting a new Yew hedge. This allowed the access drive to be pushed back to the boundary by a couple of metres. A picket fence and raised border provided a division between the new front garden and access drive.

A gate for walkers and clearly delineated gravel path were put in place along the side boundary to avoid walkers rambling across the garden, whilst Hornbeam panels provided screening between the path and the side windows of the house for privacy.

Commended at the APL awards 2012 in the 30-60k category and highly commended in the hard landscape category.


"The garden is now mature and plants have established themselves very nicely. We have had many comments of praise on what was achieved especially with the shared drive and footpath running through the property"
