What We Did

Project Overview

This new house was left with half the garden laid to lawn, and the other half left as sloping soil growing weeds. We were asked to design and build a sunken entertaining area leading off the existing paving across the back of the house. We used a dark coloured porcelain tile for the retaining walls and Millboard decking for the steps and sitting area.

The brief was for a low maintenance garden so we planted the beds with a Scottish pebble mulch to prevent weeds growing and give a light coloured and interesting texture.

A group of mature Italian cypress give some screening to the wall behind, and a mixture of low level lighting bollards and up-lights give a lovely light to the whole garden in the evenings.
