‘Back to Front

Garden’ Design

An interesting garden - the front door is accessed from a footpath but the back entrance from the parking area takes you into the garden at the back of the house. Most visitors use this back entrance because the path to the front door is not obvious.  The clients have a house number on their back gate to ensure they receive all deliveries!

The back garden is a good size and enclosed (the front garden is small, open plan and north facing).

The clients wanted to develop the back garden to include an area that could be used as an outdoor dining room, with a water feature, a lawn for the grandchildren to play, a shady sitting area, planted borders, a shed, an area for the bins and raised beds for herbs and vegetables.

A bench seat sits in the arbour in a shady corner of the lawn near the shed.

The sandstone patio is in the sunniest corner of the garden and is of a comfortable size for a dining table and six chairs.

The water feature is set in railway sleepers and is surrounded by highland cobbles.

A wonderful garden for relaxing entertaining, playing and growing herbs and salads.

The path from the back gate leads into the garden, the bin area is next to the shed (near the gate) but is screened with trellis once you are in the garden.

Round the corner and you are in the garden; the path leads you over the patio to the door.

A water feature draws the eye and sits at the end of the path on the corner of the patio.  The lawn sweeps around and arrives at the raised beds.

Raised beds for herbs and vegetables sit near the door.
