ward-winning landscape designer Ceri
Wagnell is the owner of Empire Lane.
Ceri was involved in two
consecutive, successful years
showcasing at Garden Week, where her team was
twice awarded Best Landscape Design Display. In
2010 they also won the Grand Champion award
for the very popular In the Pink display - a garden
designed for Breast Cancer awareness, inspired by
a friend suffering from the disease.
Empire Lane produces its tailored design
concepts in 3D format so that customers can really
visualise their outdoor living area or garden and
how it interacts with their home and lifestyle.
The 3D designs show great attention to detail,
alongside the newly created landscape installation
division, Garden Empire.
Ceri Wagnell from Empire Lane worked closely
with the owners to deliver a garden that the
whole family loves and enjoys.
The young family wanted their garden to be
beautiful with a functional flow and the appearance
of more space. As a result, raised garden beds and
steps became seating, screening became a piece of
art and trees provide privacy and much-needed
shade in the summer months.
Cool under foot, soft mocha travertine tiles
were used throughout the dining room courtyard
and the main garden to tie in with existing
sandstone tiles laid throughout the house.
The pond in the side courtyard sits directly
against the floor-to-ceiling windows so it seems
the water flows under the dining room floor. When
the lights are on at night, the water reflects off the
walls both inside and out.
The planting reflects a love of Mediterranean
style and a simple colour palette. Scented, flowering
and deciduous planting fills the garden with
beautiful white blooms, from the ornamental pear
trees in spring to the crepe myrtle tree in summer.
Empire Lane is the culmination of three key passions: timeless
gardens, natural products and beautiful accessories.
