Revamp for an unexciting garden
The Brief: to give the garden a total revamp as it was unexciting with a central lawn and borders around the edges. The owners especially wanted to create an outdoor seating area with a firepit or fireplace. We were commissioned to design and build the garden.
The existing garden was on a slope so we changed the emphasis of the space by levelling out to create two distinct areas on different levels with an impressive feature stone clad retaining wall between. The walls and seating area were curved and the lower lawn area was shaped in an oval to gives the garden a soft, informal feel.
In the area that catches the last of the evening sun we created a seating area with a standalone stone fireplace that is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. The fireplace also doubles up as a pizza oven so whether it’s keeping the chill away or cooking dinner, it’s all catered for.
The stunning planting scheme was selected to be low maintenance while providing lots of colour throughout the year. We also painted the existing fencing in a dark stain to ensure that the planting really stood out.
The finished result is a beautiful garden designed for relaxation.
Here are a couple of pictures of what it used to look like so you can see the transformation.
