Ecological Garden

This Garden was designed for a client in Oxford. The aim was to mix form with function - at the house-end of the design (south) is mainly a formalised design language gradually molding into a naturalistic style at the North end of the garden. The white rendered walls at the house end are in keeping with the finish of the house, whilst the more wooded northerly end of the garden aims to mimic the surrounding countryside on a micro scale.

The plants chosen were all selected from the local biodiversity index, so they can all be found in the surrounding area. These were combined with a few exceptions and a few fruit and nut providing plants, so there is a slight Forest Garden element in the design.

This garden has now been built, photos to come soon...

Designed and draughted by Marcus Busby and Dario Balboni
