Garden Design & Construction, Bishops Stortford
This Asian themed garden was completed in Bishops Stortford using the most lavish products. We followed this theme throughout the garden with the use of yellow balau decking, in this decking we sunk a cedar hot tub 75% in the ground. The main feature in this garden is the grand Oak timber building with cedar tiled roof, in this building we installed a fire pit so the garden can be used in all seasons. The main reason for this building was to house the large furniture they had brought back from Singapore. Throughout the garden we opted to use 2 different types of tumbled sandstone to signify different areas.
The planting followed the Asian theme around the hot tub and the building but we used more traditional formal planting around the house and the courtyard.
When we completed the driveway we constructed 2 piers and designed and constructed a pair of iroko (an Asian hardwood) gates along with pier caps from Haddonstone. This signifies the grand entrance to the garden. One of our clients favourite pieces in this garden is the highly bespoke trellis and gates supplied by The Garden Trellis Company, during the brief they mentioned that this trellis couldn’t be any ordinary trellis and afterwards they commented that ‘it has exceeded their expectations’.
The client was and still is overwhelmed by the finished product and are now continuously using the garden to relax and entertain family and friends.
