A multi-level sloping garden in need of modernising. Our clients brief was to create a child friendly, sociable space. With an area for dining, close to the house and an area for relaxing in the afternoon sun.
The low level retaining walls were clad in grey multi-slate and sandstone coping for a modern finish.
Wide steps were formed in grey sawn sandstone, opening up the higher levels of the garden.
Leading onto a split level dining patio, enclosed with low buxus hedging and a hidden railway sleeper retaining wall.
A solid path connects the dining area to the relaxing area.
Where a large corner sofa and parasol sits proudly, overlooking the house and garden.
Climbing jasmine plants, hydrangeas and perennials add interest and colour to the borders.
Warm lighting across the steps and borders add ambience and extend the use of the garden into the evenings.
