Inspiration – Raised Beds

Are you fed up with back breaking days in the garden? Here’s a thought – why not make life easier by installing a raised flower or vegetable bed?

Increasingly clients are asking us to incorporate raised beds in the design of their garden. Rendered flower beds painted white have proved a popular choice and fit in well with a contemporary feel garden. Alternatively raised beds made out of wooden sleepers provide an attractive feature and also double up as somewhere to sit on a sunny day.

In one garden (shown in the first three photos above) the whole design was constructed around a raised bed theme – they provided a much needed feature in a garden which before had just consisted of a lawn. In this garden, we built a floating bench into each of the three raised beds – so they double up as extra seating too!

The bottom right hand photo shows work in progress at a garden in Newbury – more photos to follow.

So for a more laid back (or at least, less back breaking!) approach to gardening, why not consider using raised beds? Contact us to discuss the best options to suit your garden.
