Contemporary Garden with Renson Pergola

Rylands is a detached bungalow, located in a wooded private estate in West Sussex.  Our clients had considered moving due to the lack of outdoor space, light, and functionality of their garden.  Instead they invited Esse Landscapes to explore the garden’s potential.   

Working with Karen McClure Garden Design, we created a clean and contemporary garden with the ‘open feel’ our clients desired.  The focus is a covered Renson structure with fully equipped outdoor kitchen and bar style seating area.

Paving is wood-effect porcelain and the planters are finished with complementary DesigClad porcelain and stainless steel corner detailing.

The lawn was raised, blending the slight incline across the site, and finished with a custom-made stainless steel edge.

A combination of soft, delicate planting created a secluded feel within the seating areas, while statement trees provide height and grandeur to the garden.

The entire garden is lit at night, with uplighters to the feature trees and miniature spike spots in the beds. 

The clients were ecstatic to see the completion of their project and to see the value that their investment into the design and build had brought them. They keep in regular contact and regularly have family and friends over to entertain in the garden.

They commented, ESSE provided us with high quality services and great craftsmanship. They have delivered an absolutely stunning garden, which has completely transformed the space
