Village Garden near Oxford
Babylon Design was initially hired to supply and plant the garden as designed by another company. However, it was felt that although the layout and hard landscaping worked well with the buildings, the planting lacked coherence.
Working with the customer, we were able to develop a beautiful low maintenance scheme with colour throughout the year. Bold repeated groups of perennials and low shrubs obscure the buildings from each other. A pair of curved beds in the centre planted with lavender and multi-stemmed Judas trees provide a scented meeting place in the middle of the courtyard.
Babylon Design is currently working with the building contractor and an acclaimed Garden Designer to landscape another house on the site designed by a Stirling Prize award winning architect. This stunning residence is scheduled for completion in 2017 when most of the garden will be laid out.
