Designing Something Special!

Posted by Pip Probert on 17 Apr 2012 at 11:57 AM

It’s that time of the year when us garden designers are really busy!  Although I enjoy designing gardens of all shapes, sizes and styles every now and again something special comes along.  I am very proud to be involved in this current project, and can’t wait to start on site, and keep you all updated with our progress! 

I am currently working on a project at Ness Botanic Gardens, Wirral, where we are bringing modern design into Ness.  This year sees the 50th Birthday of ‘The Friend of Ness’, and to celebrate we are building a ‘new’ garden.  Construction of the botanic garden began in 1897, with Arthur Bulley changing the face of British gardens.  The garden is made up of many different areas showcasing numerous plant types within the various spaces on the 65 acre plot.  We hope to create something fresh and new, giving Ness an up to date and modern space for visitors to explore, sit and enjoy.  Most of all I hope that the planting combinations will be something that people can take away with them, as I feel that is the most important part of any outdoor space.

I am currently finalising the design plans for the new space at Ness Botanic Gardens, and will be posting them on this blog in the very near future.  I will be writing an update on our progress throughout the build and also posting photographs at each stage.  Please follow our progress and more importantly come along and see the garden develop!

We will also be going to Tatton Park Flower Show again this year, but we will be working Ness Gardens to promote the new garden – ‘Making Waves’.  Our Tatton Park Show Garden, ‘A Taste of Ness’ will demonstrate some of the features used in the new design, and hopefully give you an idea of what you will find a Ness Botanic Gardens.
