An Urban Forest


Beauty can lurk in the most unexpected places, transporting you to a place that belies geography. When you’re enjoying this garden, you would never guess you were in Canterbury! 

After completing a very modern extension to their old-style timber period home, my clients were seeking seclusion and privacy from the neighbours. We created an urban forest, using tall screening plants to block prying eyes, under planted with low lying plants, creating visual interest, and a random pathway of stepping stones to create a meandering mood. 

It is amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it!!
