Cambridge Garden Design

A little slice of Cambridgeshire countryside

This contemporary garden design aims to create an immersive and precious living space in the landscape within this small Cambridge garden. Designed by Landscape artist Colm Joseph.

The local countryside is brought into the garden, and in turn into the house. Seasonal transformations are emphasised and celebrated through naturalistic planting. Alongside this, a simple, restrained palette of natural limestone hard landscaping brings a sense of calm and stillness amongst the loose, ever- changing planting.

Planting close to the glazed elevation of the house blurs the boundaries between house, garden and landscape, integrating the client’s daily experience of all three. Trees and other planting screen views from the house to create a sense of intrigue and discovery. The transition from house into garden is immediate, creating a feeling of stepping directly into the landscape.

This garden was built in autumn 2019, with more photographs to follow when the garden has had time to fully establish.
