Fighting crime, one garden at a time! This contemporary garden has been designed by Capel Manor design students to a brief set by the Metropolitan Police. The aim was to create an enjoyable, sustainable and safe garden with well-protected boundaries. ‘Secured By Design’ by Lucy Glover & Jacqueline Poll has 16 crime prevention features!
Much of the hard landscaping has been constructed with sustainability in mind. The pergola roof is crafted from old scaffold poles, and the shed is constructed from wooden palettes. The clean lines of the hard landscaping are softened by a calm, less formal planting scheme, which combines tall grasses with a riot of colourful pink and purple blooms. We were delighted to donate our Silver Grey Granite Paving and Plank Paving along with our Silver Grey Granite Aggregate which was used to blend the tones of the scheme together. The dawn till dusk low-voltage lights ensure visibility in the garden at night, and stone-effect solar lights provide additional lighting and sculptural interest.
