Sustainable redesign in Bramcote, Nottingham, using reclaimed materials.
The client was interested in increasing biodiversity in her garden along with making it more attractive, for her and her private yoga classes to enjoy. However, the materials had to be what could be gathered from the garden.
In the first stages, creating a rockery, pruning the figs trees, making a path and clearing an old allotment area were the focuses. The client decided have this area cleared to make way for a wilder space, incorporating wildflowers to increase biodiversity. The space also provided an attractive area to host the client's private yoga classes.
Following this, paths were created from the old patio. Different materials found around the garden were used to make a raise bed, steps and another small rockery.
By sustainably using reclaimed materials, Jack transformed the garden into a practical space, involving native plants to create a colourful, thriving habitat throughout the summer.
After these stages, the garden was all set for planting at the start of spring, as the client is a keen gardener but needed help with the design and labour.
