I want to introduce you to an amazing landscaper designer called Leon Kluge. Some may already be familiar with his work as an award winner at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in London.
In March 2020 he was visiting one of his clients and got stuck there during lockdown, which of course everyone thought was only going to be for 2 weeks…
He put his extended stay to good use… here are some screenshot sneak peeks of the stunning garden he walks you through in the video…
Here’s the farmland that he started out with and this is the plan he came up with…
Leon’s design is a brilliant blend of working with the natural landscape, existing buildings and tying it all together seamlessly within his design.
Leon has used a simple plant and colour palette to achieve magnificent results. It takes a lot of skill to blend plants in the controlled yet natural way that he’s achieved here. Bravo!
Beautiful use of grasses here. Notice how he’s repeated them throughout the design layout. Weaving them through the garden like this automatically draws your eyes through the garden in a sumptuous visual journey. Leon has used the rocks from the site for paths that meander through the garden and the grasses increase the flowing movement of the path.
So many gems in this garden, the attention to detail is phenomenal. I love how Leon incorporates elements for nature within the garden, like this wildlife pond.
Notice how both the door of the little building and the pergola line up perfectly with the paths. Even with natural-style gardens, it’s important to line things up to create good vistas.
The soft planting style works very well to contrast the dramatic mountain scenery… A truly stunning garden, I hope you enjoy viewing more in the video above.
