DAVID GREAVES LANDSCAPE GARDEN DESIGN AND HIS TEAM HAVE BROUGHT OVER 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN GARDEN DESIGN TO THIS PROJECT, IN COLSTON BASSETT

An incredible property deserves an incredible garden; one which really will make a great first impression. The entrance to this country home near Colston Bassett was unfortunately rather uninspiring, before the creation of a new sloping frontage, designed and constructed by David Greaves Landscape design, in conjunction with Karen Gimson Garden Design for the planting scheme.

The project saw the creation of a sloping landscape which was designed to make the most of the stunning countryside views and the derelict church in the distance. The original plain turning circle was replaced with natural screening of block colour planting in greens and purple, boxed yew hedging, trees, and a sandstone water feature with water blade.

At the heart of the design is a bespoke David Harber sculpture, a slate and sandstone house sign, a new geo-ceramica paved area and large yew balls for all year round interest.

different levels, and subtle lighting was used to highlight the different areas of the landscape in the evening. The client was delighted with the stunning new approach; it’s a great first impression for visitors and an entrance to be proud of.
