The original garden was large and spacious but lacked direction. The gradual sloping nature of the lawn prevented the client from taking full advantage of all areas. The client wanted a family-friendly garden with an area for entertaining.
A main patio area was constructed directly outside the house using Indian sandstone paving and tegula cobbles. The paving featured a circular centre piece which then led onto a smaller area of radius paving. This in turn led onto several circular sections which formed a unique â€œwalkwayâ€ linking the main eating area to the furthest point of the garden. Pergolas were erected along the walkway to add height and interest to the overall feel of the garden. Rounded posts were used as a retaining structure to compliment the sloping nature of the lawn.
The finished garden is easy to maintain yet interesting and attractive. The circular walkways draw the eye away from the house to the furthest point of the garden. The patio area directly outside the house acts as a family entertaining area and somewhere for the clients to relax after work and enjoy the rest of their garden.
