Back Garden Design

The garden was largely made up of pea shingle with stepping stones, a quadrant patio (which was too small) and a raised border.  There was no room for the canoe and the inevitable waste bins and there was nowhere for the children to play without getting into trouble!

The clients’ brief was to make the garden more child friendly with areas for play, provide an area for a table and chairs under the magnificent wisteria and make a screened area for the bins.

The clients wanted a garden for them all to use.  Something interesting for the children and a relaxing place for the grownups!

The curved path from the back door leads to a ‘hidden’ paved area under the established wisteria.

There is a raised border behind which are the waste bins and bikes, next to the gate, screened by trellis.

Plants soften the hard landscaping and accentuate

the curves.

The garden before ........

The little boy loves trains so he now has ‘tracks’ to run them on and a station platform!  A sand pit sits on a paved circle which will accommodate a focal point or  the chiminea once it is no longer required.

Curved paths make the garden seem wider.
