Friday's Garden is about Designing Outdoor Living Spaces to AMPLIFY and EXTEND their use:
Spaces that FACILITATE and ENCOURAGE the desired manner of relaxation and enjoyment; be it COOKING on coals, DINING Alfresco, BASKING in the sun, FLOATING in a pool, WARMING around an open fire, ENTERTAINING friends or PARTYING under the stars…
The service however, is not limited to just Outdoor Living Areas; Any area that requires a CAREFULLY CONSIDERED DESIGN SOLUTION that WORKS aswell as WOWS:- Entranceways, atriums, water-features…
The emphasis in Design is always on the Physical design of the Space, which remains as a constant in the Landscape. This focuses on being FUNCTIONAL, PRACTICAL, INNOVATIVE and AESTHETICally pleasing.
Planting design comes after a successful layout is achieved and is the icing on the cake, adding the natural touch. Species are selected to SOFTEN, SCREEN and HIGHLIGHT as needed, whilst being RELIABLE, SUITABLE and as EASY MAINTENANCE as possible to suit our modern day lifestyles.
Tim Friday was born in South West of England in 1971.
He qualified with a BA Hons Degree and Higher Diploma with Hons in Landscape Architecture at London’s, Greenwich University.
10 yrs Designing and overseeing the installation of mostly domestic residential Landscapes on the South Coast of England was an excellent environment in which to learn his trade, amidst the deeply rooted garden heritage that presides in the UK. During this time Tim was awarded 9 national garden awards for his designs.
During 2 yrs spent traveling in the southern hemisphere Tim fell in love with New Zealand (and his Austrian Wife), and they emigrated there in 2004.
For nearly 9 years Tim and his business partner, Master Garden Builder Adrian Fry ran their own company, ‘Take It Outside’ ltd, designing and installing Gardens in Auckland. The Nations sub-tropical climate and lust for the Outdoor Lifestyle brought rich and varied projects. A younger architectural heritage and lack of deep tradition allowed for much more freestyle design- the NZ Landscape Industry was an invaluable lesson in Landscape Design and Innovation.
2013- Family ties and Cultural roots have called Tim, Wife and two young children back to Europe to live and work;
Based in Vorarlberg, Austria, Tim has launched ‘Friday’s Garden’ on the European Market and eagerly awaits the opportunity to provide you with the optimum Landscape scheme tailored specifically to suit your lifestyle and property.
