Grange Fencing – Elite Trellis & Superior Lap Bow Top Fencing
We wanted to create a secluded, tranquil seating area for Kathleens garden, without blocking out too much sunlight. We chose Grange Elite trellis panels, which offer good structure, but allows light through its diamond lattice style shape, it’s also perfect for the wisteria, jasmine and passion flower climbers David planted, to weave around as they grow. Along with their lap bow top fencing, both work perfectly, complementing out ‘tea garden’ feel.
Grange Fencing are committed to using a pressure treatment method across their full range of timber products, to provide a superior approach to wood preservation and eliminate the need for costly and time consuming maintenance. All grange pressure treated products are guaranteed against rot and fungal decay for 20 years.
Pineapple water feature and pump
We needed a real showstopper centre piece, to sit in the middle of Kathleens tea party garden. Torstones beautiful pineapple water feature looks so elegant with its two tiered sections, the water cascades from one level to the next, creating a calming sound and movement, which can be heard throughout the garden. We planted ferns around the water feature to soften and complement its calming nature.
All stoneware products are 100% frost proof and wear naturally over time. Sourced from the UK and around the world, Torstone Ltd has gained an enviable reputation for its huge range of water features. Manufactured from many different materials and of all types and sizes, they are sure to stock a feature that will enhance your home or garden. Whether it’s a classical stone fountain, or contemporary granite water feature you can choose from a vast selection.
We selected this beautiful Malvern Apex Studio for Kathleen as it fitted in perfectly with the garden feel and was the ideal quality choice to install a kitchen in for Kathleen to bake her cakes and teach others too also! The studio provided a light and spacious environment and being painted in corn silk the colour really harmonises with the rest of the garden fencing, trellis and paving.
The Studio Apex consisted of glass double doors, the front and side windows let natural light flood into the garden studio. For comfort all year round, this garden building is fully insulated and lined with MDF in a honeydew colour. The roof is tiled in Cedar shingle and the heavy-duty floor is covered in “renaissance oak” flooring to complete the quintessentially English tea garden look.

We wanted a bespoke fit kitchen to install in the summerhouse, which catered for all of Kathleens requirements to bake cakes and teach baking. Howdens in Wellington, Somerset designed the kitchen to fit perfectly into this space. The kitchen Howdens supplied is the Allendale range which is a shaker style wood grain effect door that came with white 18mm rigid units and soft closing hinges/drawers. All units come with a 25 year guarantee. The worktops are 38mm thick oak block effect with oak knobs to complement each other. Their own Lamona brand appliances that were installed come with a 3 year guarantee. Also installed was their 3 in 1 hot water tap, which helps to remove fluoride, chlorine, particulates and reduces discolouration. This tap dispenses steaming hot water in seconds with a push-down safety mechanism and also the filter extends the life of the boiler by preventing lime scale build-up.
Howdens offer a FREE home survey and design service for everyone working closely with the tradesman. Once they have got the architects plans and a brief description of what was required they are able to draw up a plan including 3D images for a better visual. Although they sell from stock to the trade at a best local price they are also able to deliver long distances.
One of the features we wanted to incorporate into Kathleens garden was vertical planting! Wonderwall provided us with the perfect system to do just this. Alan has planted this up with colours and plants that complement the colour palette that we have used in the beds, a perfect wall of colour, that’s incredibly easy to maintain and water!
Wonderwalls vertical planters is a simple interlocking system which is self-irrigating and stores enough water to sustain the average plant for a week, which means that installation and maintenance of your new Wonderwall vertical garden is a breeze. Simply water by hand or irrigate the top row of planters and the water will cascade down to each successive planter while filling the built-in reservoir as it goes. Having constant access to a water supply is one of the key successes behind Wonderwalls system, allowing plants to flourish in their new vertical environment.
The innovative Wonderwall vertical planter system brings nature’s abundance and tranquility to any space in the home, garden or office. With flexible installation options, it’s easy to transform your environment into a calm oasis.
