Cottage Garden

Cottage garden style planting complete with a wildlife garden for the grandchildren

The brief

Our brief was to create a cottage garden feel with room for entertaining and a fairy garden for the grandchildren to play in. Colourful, wildlife encouraging planting was a must, so that the garden could be enjoyed from both inside and out.

The Solution

We created an initial design, visual and planting plans to enable us, which the client was over the moon with. The design used a pea shingle path with reclaimed brick edging, an archway to frame the entrance into the fairy garden and a picket fence to give that classic country cottage feel. We also included smaller details such as bug hotels, bespoke topiary features and ornaments
for the fairy garden.

The Feedback

The results were fantastic, the garden has since been enjoyed by all the family and is full of wildlife and bird activity. We built the garden on this occasion as well so we are very pleased with the outcome, having had full control of the build. We have since been back and planting numerous bulbs and are looking forward to the displays they will bring in Spring.

Chris designed and built the most amazing front and back garden for us. He really got what we were trying to achieve and developed our idea into a garden beyond our imagination. It’s been amazing to watch it change through the seasons and now looking forward to bulbs making their first appearance. Would absolutely recommend Greenbook Landscape Design to bring your garden to life!
