Before & After: A Sussex Family Garden

before and after suburban back garden

I choose this before and after garden created for a show house in West Sussex England by Modular for one reason.  It is an odd shaped yard, and I love that although this is in a housing development, the designers resisted the urge to take the wood fence to the brick wall closing everything off.  I think it is much more interesting that they have 3 fence types. (who would have thought it would work so well?) But even better, their remains a view and an openness to the space and wild beyond in the back that gives this garden so much more health, beauty and vitality.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
