Creating outstanding contemporary garden spaces


Outstanding contemporary garden spaces

Just like any project in the home, your garden can seem complex and somewhat overwhelming. You may envision something in your head, but what materials should you use? What plants will help create your desired coloured scheme? Where do you begin?

At Taylor Barnes, we have spent many years transforming many gardens into personalised spaces that my clients truly cherish and want to spend time in. A garden is not just a bit of land outside your home, it’s another space for you to enjoy!

People turn to us for their outdoor projects as we understand the importance of creating a space that completes your home. A garden must provide a practical service and resonate with each client’s individual style, something we aim to provide.

See what some of our clients have to say about us!

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.
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. 
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.
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.

Who says your driveway has to look plain with concrete? Our client wanted a large sweeping drive that encompasses the double garage opposite the house.

Courtyard Garden

Our client sought a courtyard garden with strong influential elements of a Mediterranean outdoor setting. This would be complemented by a contemporary water feature that inhabits fish. This garden would provide the client with a stunning outdoor space that can be enjoyed throughout the year.

This garden project involved creating a space that would serve multiple purposes that benefit the family and the view behind the property.

Triangular Garden

This client sought a lawn with beds and a path that led down the garden, towards a greenhouse and vegetable garden.

Contemporary Gravel Garden

This client sought a contemporary gravel garden that would stand out from the rest. However, despite wanting to create such a visually stunning space, the garden must be designed in a way that would be easy to maintain. This would mean limiting the number of plants and focusing more on contemporary pieces such as a

Farm Courtyard

We converted this farmhouse courtyard to compliment the two single-story Cheshire-brick farm buildings that were facing one another.

Country Garden

Our client was looking to create a country-style garden that would compliment the pre-existing cottage. Behind the cottage lies two acres of land that would need to be developed to bring the home and garden together. This entire look would be achieved by bringing in a variety of natural materials, creating a homely, welcoming country-style
