In large gardens it is obvious that there are a variety of design options. However clients with more compact plots can sometimes feel stuck. These sets of drawings offer a glimpse of the latent possibilities in every space.
Images 1 - 4 are alternative masterplans. The garden is wide but shallow so we were addressing the dilemma of how to extend a generous eating terrace straight from the kitchen, then drop quickly to garden level 2 metres below without a forbidding wall.
Images 5 - 7 form a set of quick sketches (each an outline with mini perspective drawing below) for a 10m x 15m lightly sloping town garden. The sketches were presented early on while considering the form a masterplan might take.
Images 8 - 9 show nine "back of the envelope" dashed off outlines for clients who felt their 7m x 12m town garden held little potential. We took the clients on a tour of these mini visual guides with their varied possibilities for planting, seating and general form, leading to constructive discussion before a masterplan was drawn up.
