Contemporary Cottage Garden – Cranleigh, Surrey


 The brief was to create a haven from daily life -a pollinator, wildlife friendly space, with a cottage garden feel, one which complemented our clients modern new build home.

What was once an uninspiring patch of grass is now transformed into an entertaining area with a patio and summer house bordered with lavender and thyme. There is a gravel garden with a soothing millstone water feature and Malus tree’s for year-round interest and screening.  Painted raised beds give height and perspective to the garden and are easier on the back! 

An intimate seating area has been created under the shade of four Parasol pleached trees, perfect for morning coffee. 

Small format sandstone pavers and setts add to the detail.

The Finished Garden

The Garden Before

We can’t thank Paula and her garden and landscaping team enough for our beautiful new garden. From our visit to Paula’s website and impressive pictures of her RHS Hampton court garden design to her first visit to our plain lawned garden where we talked of our vision. We knew Paula was the garden designer for us. Her passion & knowledge of plants along with her bubbly personality and interesting ideas meant we knew our dream garden was in safe hands.

We were thrilled that she would soon be designing us a very special one of a kind garden.

Exciting plans soon arrived and in Summer 2020 a start was made on the hard landscaping. Carl and his team were polite and hardworking and genuinely a pleasure to have around during the build. Very soon the garden began to take shape, formally raised planters and pretty cottage garden borders and specimen trees for year-round colour including four parasols pleached trees forming a much needed shaded area in our south-facing garden.

Paula & Rob worked incredibly hard planting up all the amazing shrubs & flowers and installing a watering system. Finally, a smart lawn was laid & a gravel garden added complete with a water feature.

We are so impressed with our finished contemporary cottage style garden and look forward to spending lots of time enjoying our beautiful outdoor space. We can recommend Paula and her team  wholeheartedly”
