Unusual Shaped

Garden Design

This back garden is a corner plot and, therefore, is triangular.  It faces northwest but different parts of the garden are sunny at different times of the day.  There are changes in levels and the question was whether to accentuate this and add steps to the garden or use terraced beds and gently sloping paths?

The important thing was to create different areas to sit at different times of the day to take advantage of any sunny spots.

The client wanted areas

creating different views, a water feature for visual impact and sound, an entertaining area for at least four people and a low maintenance garden preferably with artificial grass.

A raised lawn partly surrounds   a sandstone circle and creates an informal step seat.

A curved path leads through a pergola, with fragrant climbing plants, to a circular patio with an area for the barbecue.

The pergola separates the garden into different ‘rooms’ and the path creates a journey through the garden.

The water feature adds immediate interest to the view from the lounge and a seat invites you out to explore.  In time the plants will partly conceal the view and the temptation to sit in the sunshine will coax you outside.

A part of the garden is in shade most of the day and is ideal for growing ferns.

Box balls edge the path to this area adding some formality.

Sun and shade create areas suited to different types of planting adding interest and contrast and enabling different moods to be created.
