Urban Garden Design

The garden of this newly built home in Woodthorpe, Nottingham was a blank canvas in need of character.

This complete design project showcases how an average size urban garden can be turned into a sanctuary for people and wildlife.

  • The first stage was to add some much needed colour to the garden, by painting the fence a vibrant blue to contrast against the colourful plants that were later planted. 

  • To break up the harshness of the square shape to the garden, curved beds were designed and created.

  • A wooden corner-planter with willow trellis was also added to help mask the brick and add further colour.

  • Space for a bench under an arch entwined with fragrant jasmine was also made, to ensure the client can relax in their new garden, once the grass had grown. 

  • When joint with White Cotswold stone, the colourful flowers and vibrant fence, the garden gained a subtle seaside feel.

The feedback received stated how happy the client was with the increase of wildlife and transformation in general.


Turning even the smallest spaces into inviting places for people and wildlife.
