Our latest transformation… A ‘Zen’ New-Build garden.. Caroline and Simon bought this Mulgrave new-build home on the south side of Harrogate in 2020. The garden was a typical, bland turfed space with a small patio area. The brief was to create a similar look to our 2021 ‘Escape your mind’ Show Garden with a relaxing feel. The black, zen pergola creates a key focal point, with a staggered, plank, steppingstone path enticing you into the relaxing zone. The Lignia wood bench and decking bring a beautiful, bright, wooden texture and grain detail into the space. Plentiful seating, a comfortable journey, natural materials, and lush greenery ensures this garden creates contemplation, rejuvenation, and relaxation and gives them and their friends a peaceful space to connect. Lucious planting of Salvia nemerosa ‘Caradonna’, Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ Deschampsia cespitosa, Ilex crenata and Hemerocallis ‘Stella de Oro’ bring colour, form, and structure to the space. Acers add the Zen touch and a multi-stem Catalpa bignoniodes ‘Aurea’ tree to bring all-important screening and some wow factor.
