Linden Landscapes


The BALI judges comments on this garden were:

This reconstruction of the upper half of a sloping garden was essentially to provide a level spacious patio and lawn as an external extension to the house.

This included a formal water feature at the patio level spilling over into a less formal pond at the lower level.

The paving was particularly impressive as was the soft work integration into the existing garden.

The lifting and replanting of existing well established shrubs including a Magnolia Grandiflora had been well managed and executed.

A most pleasing scheme.
