English-Japanese Fusion Garden

An English-Japanese Fusion Garden


This is a south west facing rear garden overlooking the sea in Weymouth, Dorset.It is bordered by fences, and consists of a patio which leads onto a lawn dotted with specimen conifers and shrubs. The garden is 35m long and 15m wide. The couple wanted a low maintenance garden with views of the sea, but also interesting plants such as Camellia, Japanese Anemones and grasses. The soil is acidic loam.


Requirements for the new garden design/landscape architecture:


  • A second patio overlooking the sea
  • Curvilinear lawns and borders
  • Access to the bottom of the garden when the ground is wet


Here is the Conceptual Plan:
