Rustic Garden Ideas and Designs

Our client’s garden was bereft of any interest, other than a large shed at the end of the garden, and a small patio outside the house. An unattractive stand of conifers dominated one side of the garden, and overpowered the space. These two areas were linked using a bold design of interlinking circles, with a cobbled path snaking its’ way down the garden to create a feeling of greater width and depth. A dry stone wall sets off the patio, and frames the entrance into the main part of the garden. A feature pot is set on a plinth at the bottom end of the garden, where it is visible from the house. The planting is colourful and interesting, with box balls used to reinforce the circular theme. The conifers have been removed and replaced with attractive ornamental trees that will provide more year round interest

A Late 14th century distinctive, rural building with a Grade II listing. Our clients were working on internal renovations and extensions prior to the construction of the garden. When they approached Aralia they were requiring a contemporary garden to match the redeveloped interior rooms. The family orientated space that we created in the courtyard, was only just a part of a larger garden, but was designed in order to become the more usable area for the family. Aralia used a clean, contemporary design, combined with more traditional references such as the pergola detailing, black metal edge details and the brickwork chosen. This project included a complete re-model of the space into three separate terraces, with surrounding textual planting and specimen trees. Features of the design included a pleached hedge to enable privacy, bespoke fabricated oak and metal pergolas, and atmospheric lighting. Aralia connected the rest of the natural garden through sculpture landform to blend the contemporary and formal with the natural and informal. Other elements of this garden include a Yorkstone edged bed and instant box hedging to frame the views to the front of the property.

Exclusive to Lumena, this range of impressive wooden path lights are crafted from heavy duty Radiata Pine. This amazing material is sourced from South Africa where the dry weather increases its density resulting in low splitting properties, which means the timber won’t crack or split more than 5mm. Most domestic softwoods display significant cracks or splitting as the timber seasons. The wood is chemically treated and kiln dried to give it an expected life of up to 15 years. Similar Pine is used in Children’s playgrounds and nature reserves. Solid Brass lights are incorporated into machined orifices in the pine timber sleepers or posts to create a robust, elegant path light. 12v and 240v options are available, and all are LED compatible. These durable lights are in-keeping with the natural surroundings and aesthetics of the garden and are available in two heights, designed for 300mm - 400mm secure in-ground mounting.

Take a dip in a lake (or build your own natural swimming pond) Remember that childhood summer holiday you spent playing in the local stream or pond? Well these days, if you have enough space in your garden, you can create a natural swimming pond. These are a relatively new invention in northern Europe that rely on plants rather than chemicals to create a great swimming environment. And when not in use, it’s a great feature and wildlife reserve in itself. - jrpheby
