Martial Arts Garden

Martial Arts Garden



Address: Hawthorn Avenue, Kettering, Northamptonshire.



Client: Mr. Paul S



Status: Completed 2018



Project Description: Martial Arts Training Garden, Phase 2



Having already designed a tropical garden comprising of tree ferns bamboo and Eriobotrya next door the client had purchased the neighbouring house with the intention to develop a Marshals Arts Garden, for training and relaxation. Once the new house had been renovated it was time to turn attention to the garden, this was somewhat overgrown and had to be cleared before it was possible to survey the garden.


The brief asked for the space to be divided into three sections firstly was the paved area for Martial Arts training with space for three people to work around their own training post, the planting was to be minimal so as not to impede training. raised beds were built near steps down into the training space from a terrace near the house. These were planted with bamboo, Tree Ferns and grasses. A bamboo fence constructed in the Japanese style divided the relaxation space with a gate leading into a garden using paths that were placed to provide alternate journeys down to the breeze house set under a mature Beech Tree. Adjoining Victorian Red brick walls were rebuilt and repaired and a gate was installed to access the neighbouring garden. A log store was constructed to create a feature wall behind the Breeze house, planting was again of a tropical theme using grasses, bamboos, tree ferns, and Eriobotrya.

Turn Your Dream Into A Reality


Gardens are never finished they change with the seasons and plants continue to grow and change. A garden design will provide you with the ultimate concept to work towards, however not all gardens can be afforded in one go, so to complete the final garden may take several years, this will be dependent on your budget and time frame.


It is, however, possible to have a garden designed so that it can be built by the contractor in phases. In this way, a section can be completed and enjoyed, whilst the next phase is completed sometime in the near future.
