New Eden

First up, we have the appropriately titled New Eden, a garden design and landscaping company founded by Richard Gosling in 2002. Committed to high quality, New Eden operate within a 30 mile radius of Chelmsford in central Essex. The company’s knowledgeable and highly capable design team will ensure you get the garden you desire. They know a garden can mean different things for every client. That ideal garden can be to nurture local wildlife, create an outdoor space for entertaining or encourage children’s play – or do a little bit of all three.

The expert garden designers at New Eden will listen carefully to their client’s aspirations and requirements for the garden, ask lots of questions and then offer inspiring ideas and solutions to any potential problems. But having your garden professionally designed and built doesn’t come cheap. Most of the garden design and build projects undertaken by New Eden cost £20,000 or more. However, as these stunning examples of New Eden’s previous work show, it’s money well spent.

South Woodham Ferrers

Along with an informal dining space, this modern family garden in South Woodham Ferrers includes a secluded lounge area with a rattan corner sofa set and glass-top table. “This garden was one of those that seemed to design itself,” says New Eden. “The palette of materials chosen heavily influenced the shape and size of the spaces.”

This amazing Shenfield garden was the result of a collaboration between New Eden and garden designer Andy Sturgeon, winner of numerous gardening awards including 6 Gold Medals and Best in Show at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The organic shape of the eye-catching oak pavilion perfectly mirrors the garden’s design.

Originally laid out by the architect homeowners, this Writtle garden was given a few finishing touches by New Eden to better compliment the house and help make the garden a little more practical. The tiered deck and sleeper bed remain from the original garden, but New Eden flattened out the sloping lawn, then added the pathway and edging.
