Design it Landscapes

PLATINUM AWARD, Best Construction, designed by Lucy Bravington Design


Travel Theme: New York

Influenced by a love of New York, this garden design uses trees and grasses to add privacy,  making an enticing place to relax with a Manhattan cocktail!

This garden is designed for a couple with a love of interior design and has incorporated an industrial theme. The couple love to travel and New York in the United States is their favourite city. They particularly love The High Line, a beautiful garden on a bridge over a dis used railway line, due to it's contemporary styling, clean lines and industrial feel. The ornamental grasses and perennial plants are a highlight and would like to incorporate these into the garden. The location of the couple's garden means it is quite overlooked much like The High Line with its high-rise apartments and offices either side, so would like some trees, of which there are many along The High Line. The couple are also looking for places to sit with a coffee or drink to take in the garden rather than outdoor dining.

Design subject to change.
