A Contemporary Dry Garden

Ickleton, Cambridgeshire
Design & Build Project

Our client came to us wanting a front garden that was low maintenance, able to fit 2 cars whilst also being a joy to look at. Because of this we designed a contemporary garden using a combination of gravel, sandstone paviours and river cobbles. We created a raised planting bed made from vertical oak sleepers. To finish we planted in and around the beds with drought tolerant plants which had a cottage garden feel and incorporated a beautiful willow fence on the boundary. 

This garden has been nominated for an award by the Association of Professional Landscapers.

Clients’ Thoughts

“Jacq and Wills created a beautiful and sustainable front garden out of a worn-out lawn and drive. They listened carefully to our requirements and produced a design for a low-maintenance cottage garden with a contemporary twist. His team of landscapers were polite and hardworking, popular with our neighbours, and completed the work on schedule, all within the agreed budget.”
