Lewes – Shingle garden

Original garden - single

Our re-landscaping took the themes of shingle and weathered timber, with a nod to Derek Jarman’s garden in Dungeness.

The project included

  • a diagonal line of oak sleepers to create different levels
  • herb bed
  • fern planter  outside the kitchen door to conceal the recycling bins below
  • shingle fountain with assembled sculpture of found metal rods and pipes
  • copper protects the frame of the trellis, the bird house roof and on the storage shed theshold.
  • bespoke furniture design
  • mirrors (to reflect some light into the constantly in-shade back of the house)
  • wooden sculptures
  • solar powered water feature and festoon lighting
  • herringbone brick pavers
  • hardwood decking
  • garden shed (using a sealed up brick extension at the back of the house)
  • low-maintenance, wildlife-friendly planting
  • cosmposting area
