Graduate Gardeners have again won 2 BALI Awards for design & build projects 2017
Both Cotswold village gardens, one in the £ 60k - £ 100k designed by Ian Morrison and built by Charlie Deacon, and one in the £ 100k - £ 250k range, designed by Mark Draper and built by Richard Banyard.
Construction £ 100k - £ 250k range
The larger project was part of a complete renovation of a lovely Cotswold stone property, where the clients wanted a simple, structured look, with topiary and a simple colour palette for the planting scheme.
The scheme included paved seating areas, a parterre garden with a water feature and a long path leading to wooden sleeper steps up to the adjacent paddock, which has been contoured with paths and set to a wild flower meadow, with fabulous views across the valley opposite.
Construction £ 60k - £ 100k range
The smaller project was to create a modern feel in the garden of a period property to complement the contemporary Garden Office set on a higher level at the end of the plot. Existing box hedges, fastigiate yew and two trees had to be incorporated, also a twist in the length of the garden had to be hidden.
