Completed Cobham garden

It's always interesting to compare 'before' and 'after' images, to see how amazing the transformation is. This house and garden have had a total makeover, and the borders have just been planted. One of my favourite moments in my design career include those where the planting has been finished, and I am alone with a realised project, months after I first saw it overgrown and unloved.

The brief included a patio to catch the sun, a winter garden viewed from the kitchen, and relaxed romantic planting. The awkward steps needed re-modelling, and the problem of difficult level changes addressed.

The front garden looks quite different too. I'm really looking forward to returning when the plants have matured and grown, and I can design the remainder of the garden, including the studio garden and the side courtyard.
