New Garden Design Overcomes the Problem of Tree Roots.
A typical English country garden with established trees and invasive tree roots.
Our clients commissioned us to design a feature bridge and garden gate. The bridge provides a safe path between two mature trees with protruding roots.
Our Concept Design solution
A bridge of sleepers arch over the roots of the tree before flowing down towards the gate.
A sweeping handrail follows the line of the bridge supports, emerging from the ground as a tapered newel post before rising with the bridge and creating a physical link to the new gate.
The gate is also designed using Railway sleepers.
