Contemporary Garden Design Project, Wilmslow Cheshire, By David Keegan Garden Design

A recently completed set of designs for a very interesting project in Wilmslow in Cheshire. The clients wanted a very contemporary set of designs for both the front and rear gardens to better frame, and compliment, their contemporary home. The plans  also had to include a contemporary water feature, creating a focal point near the main entrance to the house. This turned out to be quite a challenge and it took me sometime to find the inspiration needed to design an effective and sculptural piece to fit the brief. After many weeks of frustration i finally came up with a design that i felt would be innovative and in keeping with the design aesthetic of the landscape designs for the area as a whole. However, given that it is still to be manufactured i am not going to include plans at the moment, but will update this post in the future with pictures of the water feature insitu. The designs for the drive are also, in my opinion, a new innovation combining hard landscaping  materials using innovative and combined  techniques to create a contemporary and abstract pattern which lifts the drive, and as a consequence the house, beyond the ordinary and mundane. All in all a very challenging and exciting project which i am looking forward to seeing installed over the coming months. In the meantime here are a few before pictures and a copy of the garden design plans.
