Large family garden in West Horsley, Surrey

Work in progress


The brief

  • Increase privacy in the garden
  • Retain a good size lawn for the children to accommodate the trampoline, create a family garden
  • Retain the Orchard area on the upper level but to include a seating area 
  • Open to ideas with regards to planting beds and planting schemes. A mixed wildlife hedge has been planted along the boundary. Emphasis on wildlife friendly planting. 
  • A place for a shepherds hut (for storing garden furniture, garden items or to be used as a second study). Give ideas for shepherd’s hut itself.
  • Will existing well fit into the new design? 
  • New layout of entrance path
  • Relocation of bins, subsequent closure of gate and re-direct pathway up to the orchard
  • Driveway 
  • Suggestions for new gate
  • Irrigation and garden lighting
