This family garden, based in a town, was overgrown and lacking in any defined structure. The existing terrace of concrete slabs needed relaying, and the client required an outdoor kitchen for entertaining in summer, whilst the orientation of said terrace meant that it did not receive any evening sun. The brief therefore was to create a new main terrace and kitchen, with a contemporary feel. Further down the garden, old borders were cleared and replanted with structural planting of Yew hedging, pleached trees and further structure from small trees including Crab Apple and Amelanchier – both providing spring blossom. An ‘evening terrace’ was created further still down the garden, backing onto a new water feature, which lends the sound of moving water to this tranquil space. The far end of the garden, which originally contained an old climbing frame, was set aside to AstroTurf, to allow space for ball games and a trampoline.
