The brief for this landscape design project was to suggest a new driveway layout, external shower area, new patio and planted garden area for a coastal property in Crozon, Finistere.
We were already building two extensions to the S/W and S/E elevations of the property and due to the extensive works including a new septic tank and soak away installation, the garden was in need of some TLC. We therefore engaged Ken Grix @ https://www.instagram.com/kengrix_studio/?hl=en to help us with the landscape design and redefine the front driveway to the property. As the photos show, before all works started, the property was completely overgrown, the hedges to the front were therefore removed for building work access and the existing wooden dilapidated gate was demolished.
The design process
Kens drawings, shown above, provided us with a clear outline of how the different areas of the garden could be created, including an external shower area to the S/E elevation, a new curved driveway to accommodate up to three vehicles, a planted shrubbery section to the front and a paved walkway around to a new back patio area. We also worked closely with Ken to design a fenced area around the external shower to provide privacy, as shown below.
The project is continuing into summer 2023 with the addition of a stone clad wall and new gate to the front of the property. Check out our Facebook page to see more developments as they happen: https://www.facebook.com/renovationlifestyle/
