Formal White Garden

Formal White Garden

Who says your driveway has to look plain? Our client wanted a large sweeping drive that encompasses the double garage opposite the house. The drive would be complemented with beautiful florals and greenery that add warmth. This would be a garden that is steeped in history and will be completed with a pathway that leads to the back of the property.

Planting


The plants that brighten up this drive consists of a range of formally clipped box hedges, a simple palette of light colours and a selection of evergreen planting with some roses. with a palette of white and pink plants.

Design


At the front of the house, we added a formal border with a low-clipped Buxus hedge. The path heading down was bordered on either side, with standard clipped ball bay trees. Then, to the right of the house and left of the drive, we added a box hedge.

After meeting with several garden designers we decided to choose Taylor Barnes because of their combination of design and building skills. Paul and his team were very pleasant to have around the house and were able to include last minute changes as the new garden evolved. We were so pleased with the outcome that we asked them to landscape our front garden last year as well. 
I had engaged Taylor Barnes to design and build our garden at home in the UK. They took our brief, but rather than slavishly follow it, they emboldened and embellished it with their own ideas which complemented our initial thoughts. The result has been a fantastic garden that has given us 8 years of pleasure.
Having decided to create a special look to a farm courtyard I employed the services of Taylor Barnes. From the beginning the venture was exciting, and they were enthusiastic and creative. The design drawn was amazing and when it came to fruition I was more than pleased, it was every bit perfect.
From our very first contact to the moment our garden was finished we have been delighted with the work. We felt that they really wanted us to enjoy our garden and were excited by the project which gave us great confidence and belief. Our garden is now an extension of our living room and looks so much better than we could have ever anticipated.
