Step Into The Garden

Harmonious garden spaces

Expert garden design is crucial for creating cohesive and functional outdoor areas that enhance your living experience.

We treat outdoor spaces as extensions of your home, meticulously designing them as if they were another room. Transitional areas that link house and garden, such as balconies, verandas, and gazebos, connect you with sunlight, open views, and green spaces.

Our expert designs help you make the most of your outdoor space, allowing you to connect with nature and enjoy your garden throughout the seasons.

Why choose Bottle Kiln Design?

Natural and reclaimed

Your choice of building materials can help bring character and uniqueness to your project. There are many different forms of vernacular in our working area, from the limestone walling of the High Peak to the soft Bulwell stones used in and around Nottingham. We enjoy sourcing reclaimed and traditional materials where this is required or appropriate; and in all contexts using materials with enduring quality such as granite, oak, and lead detailing.

A complete service

From design, planning, and building right through to planting and lighting, most of the work is carried out using our own teams of skilled craftspeople and always under our own careful supervision and control.

Bespoke design

All of our gardens are very different, from the small and intimate to the large and dramatic. Sometimes a complete scheme can be designed and realised as one project. More often, we will be looking at one part or aspect of your garden or perhaps working towards a larger scheme in a number of linked smaller projects, which take place over a number of years. There is no rule other than what best works for you and adds joy and pleasure to your use of the garden space.

Landscaping services

Our landscaping services encompass planting schemes, water features, brick and stone walls, paving, steps, and other garden structures. We ensure each element enhances both beauty and functionality.

With our landscape design expertise, we create outdoor spaces that seamlessly integrate with your home and environment. Our dedicated landscapers focus on enhancing your garden’s natural beauty, crafting spaces that are both inviting and enduring.

Some of our latest work

  • Following the renovation and updating of this house, we were approached to design a contemporary garden wrapping around the back and side which connected the house and garden in style and materials, and enabled the new wide glass doors to open onto entertaining spaces.

  • Our clients wanted off road parking for their Edwardian property which had only a ramped path up the four metre incline to the front door which was hidden from view. An existing two metre stone retaining wall separated the sloping front garden from the pavement in this conservation area setting.

  • To revitalise a neglected garden space constrained by a preservation order on an oak tree, we employed stone gabion baskets and Breedon gravel paving, effectively transforming the area into a functional and attractive outdoor setting.
