This was a complete makeover of a front and rear garden of an old four-storey Victorian property. The designers’ brief was to create a garden that was sympathetic to the property. It included provision for a vegetable plot with a glasshouse, a new terrace area, bespoke trellis work and a planting scheme. As part of the brief, the designers were tasked with ensuring that the new three-bay oak-framed garage blended in with the garden.

Judges’ comments

"The front and rear gardens of this Victorian property have been transformed by the workmanship, quality and amazing attention to detail demonstrated by the contractor.

"It was a site with a huge side crossfall and was bounded on one side by protected lime trees. The scheme has been carefully thought through and every 'hard' aspect — fence panelling, brickwork, vegetable plots, greenhouse, pergola, steps and walling — has been constructed by the contractor to a high standard, working around existing tree roots. Soft planting has been well executed and the clients are absolutely thrilled with the result."
