The Nordic Folk Art Garden

The clients for this garden had older children and a lively collie dog.  I believe that every garden should be a reflection of its owner’s personality and interests. The client was an enthusiastic gardener who had a beautiful, Scandinavian-style house that had a disconnect with the cottage garden she loved. I helped her find inspiration by combining traditional Scandinavian folk art patterns into a  bespoke corten steel panel that became a central feature of the garden. This Scandinavian woodland oasis garden, cleverly combined all her beloved cottage garden plants. The Scandinavian style house no longer looked out of place creating a beautiful, cohesive design. We has also focused on making the  garden a friendly space for wildlife.
