So this is the big news. I am officially taking on a whole variety of writers to help create fantastic content here. I feel so lucky to be able to round up such a great group and I am pleased to introduce you to the first. Katrina Kieffer Wells (read more about her on the updated writers page) is the woman behind Earth Designs, a London based garden design firm (become a fan of them on Facebook here). Katrina works with her husband to create all kinds of imaginative landscapes for her clients and she is going to be here every week to share the story of one project at a time. It is like the ultimate before and after….in that we all get to follow along through the whole process. Have you ever wondered what it is like to work with a designer and have your garden built?….Well, here is your chance to be a fly on the wall and see the ups and downs, as it goes, week by week.
This is Kat and (husband) Matt….Designer and Builder….purrfect.
I pondered long and hard about what to call this feature and then one day it hit me. When I was pregnant with my daughter (my first) I was obsessed with this British TV show called A Baby Story. The show (which follows all the gory details of one couple’s baby story) actually creeps me out a bit these days, but back then I loved following along with the soon to be moms and dads as they became parents. When I think of this feature it sort of strikes me the same way….except we will be replacing extreme birthing room shots with the hard labor and the dirty mud that comes with giving life to a new garden. So without further adieu, I introduce to you ….A Garden Story.
Every garden design project starts with a brief….it is the basic gist of the clients wants and needs and what we have to work with…..here is the brief for the first project that we will be following along with….
Did you flip through the whole gallery? Good….we will be back next week (same Thursday afternoon time) with the next installment of A Garden Story where we will see Kat’s Mood Boards and proposed design solutions.
Tell me, what else would you like to see or learn from this feature? Are you as excited as I am to see what is next? 😉
