Sevenoaks Landscape Renovation

Working under sub contract for Langdale Landscapes, ELD was contracted to provide a multi-space rear landscape design along with a simple open plan front driveway design. Both spaces were tired and had been left under developed for many years with significant weed growth and little hard landscape investment - very much blank canvases.

The clients wanted to maintain an open vista to the roadside in keeping with the style of other neighbouring properties, maximising the available parking space with some planting interest / screening and a low boundary wall. The design accommodated all these elements borrowing some of the aesthetics from the main rear design alongside a simple resin bound surface for the driveway.

Subtle changes in height across the rear meant the design was able to delineate spaces both visually and practically with changes in height creating separate garden spaces for eating, lounging, shade, open lawn and storage. The main feature of the design was the workmanship on the central retaining and dividing rear stone clad walls with their ‘floating’ bench seating. A practical design with stunning elements for all season use.
