Hitchin Hideaway - A Masterclass in Balance, Calm and Aesthetic Appeal

Presenting Hitchin Hideaway, a captivating garden project executed in phases in Hitchin by Joe and his blue team. This garden is more than just an outdoor space - it's a sanctuary that beckons visitors to step into its zen-like embrace, away from the bustle of the outside world.

At the heart of the Hitchin Hideaway project is a sense of balance and harmony, embodied in its choice of materials. The garden's unique visual identity is shaped by a blend of patterned tiles, clay pavers, and dark tones. These elements, each with its distinct texture and color, come together in an intriguing composition that invites contemplation.

Subtle level changes throughout the garden add a layer of complexity and interest to the design. Rather than being an obstacle, these level changes are a deliberate design feature, enhancing the garden's charm and creating a sense of journey as you navigate the space.

The garden is punctuated by a swinging chair and a bespoke cedar bench, each carefully placed to encourage rest and reflection. The swinging chair offers a fun, playful element to the garden, while the cedar bench, with its warm hues, provides a welcoming spot to sit, relax, or simply enjoy the beauty of the garden.

The visual impact of the orange cedar against the black posts is a masterstroke in design. This striking contrast creates a focal point, drawing the eye and adding to the overall aesthetic appeal of the garden. It's these thoughtful touches that make the Hitchin Hideaway a truly special space.

Hitchin Hideaway is a testament to the power of thoughtful, considered design. It demonstrates that even in the most humble of spaces, a garden can create a sanctuary of calm and tranquility. Through careful planning and selection of materials, Joe and his blue team have created a garden that not only looks stunning but also invites a sense of relaxation and serenity.

At Refined Landscapes, we strive to create gardens that aren't just beautiful, but also nurturing and inviting. Hitchin Hideaway is a prime example of this philosophy in action. It's a place where beauty, balance, and calm coexist, creating a zen space that welcomes all who enter.
