12 Minterne Road, Sandbanks

Throughout the design process we worked closely with the developer to deliver landscapes for these exclusive contemporary houses in Sandbanks.


Our design focused on connecting the modern architecture with the surrounding established woodland. The design proposal included using minimal hardscape materials to focus the design on the surrounding soft landscape.

The use of shade tolerant perennial wildflower has been used in the rear gardens to create striking ground cover in deep shade under the established Pine trees, combined with low structural hedging through the meadow to create seasonal interest and structure. Meandering paths through the meadow lead to carefully placed seating areas with views across the site.

The planting at the front of the properties consisted of a more contemporary style, with the use of Yew cubes to create instant impact upon entering the property/ This was mirrored in the herbaceous borders with a variety of low shrubs clipped in to cubes with surrounding grasses chosen to move in the wind.
