A Family Garden with Space for Everyone
Brief: To design and build a garden for all the family to include a lots of lawn for kicking footballs, an area for a trampoline and somewhere to sit and eat. Low maintenance planting was also stipulated.
The existing garden was on a slope so we came up with a stunning design consisting of two kidney shaped lawn areas with a bank between to transition between levels. A circular paving area was created for the trampoline, which could then transition to a seating area once the trampoline is no longer required. A stylish but practical solution to the changing needs of a family.
A paved terrace adjacent to the house was created with a bubble fountain incorporated into the paving for a fun water feature, perfect for relaxing in the evenings. Ethically sourced Indian sandstone was used for all the paving as it is hardwearing, low maintenance and light in colour so creates a great contrast to the lawn.
The planting was mainly Lavender, Heathers and Santolinas – all non toxic, low maintenance and robust enough to withstand footballs! But there is no compromise on style – the planting was designed to give great colour throughout the year.
So overall we created a stylish garden that works for all the family. The layout has been carefully designed so the garden can adapt as the children grow up.
Here are some images before we started work so you can see the transformation.
