For those of you who haven’t explored the rest of this site, there’s a “Designs” page, where I post pictures of –yup–designs. I’ve just updated it with a few recent projects, so have a look, and by all means, leave me any comments you wish. Preferably not too critical… Designs page.

These designs haven’t been completely installed yet, so I don’t have “gardens” to show you.  But here’s a starter to “whet your appetite”.

This is a new site, corner, traditional looking house, black and charcoal grey, almost symmetrical. It’s on a slope, with a retaining wall about 50″ high across the back (top of the picture). I decided on a raised bed design, which is what the “W’s” are.

This is a SketchUp model of the raised beds. Poured in place concrete with benches built-in.

Next is a simple square backyard that the clients wanted to keep fairly square-looking, mainly turf, leaving room to install a lap pool next year.

It’s been difficult to discipline myself to get my projects completed earlier than later. So I end up taking pictures of the coloured design instead of getting it scanned before presenting it to the client. raynes arbour

 

SketchUp model of a little arbour/fence combination for the back. And Layout has these cool style options. In this case pastels.

So that’s it for the moment–it’s taken me all evening to figure out how to convert these pdf’s to jpg’s. More to come–stay tuned.
