The Brief

Having redesigned and constructed the side garden of the property in phase 1, the client’s attention was drawn to the rear garden of the property which was very tired and old, and only consisted of lawn and an uneven Yorkstone terrace.

The clients wanted a natural link from the side garden to the rear, however they wanted a contrasting style consisting of new formal terraces created using the existing Yorkstone paving, and a form of water feature Also the existing borders needed to be redeveloped and refreshed with new planting.

What we did

Our solution

Providing a natural link to join the side garden to the rear

The design used a combination of formal and informal design styles to add interest to the garden and optimise the irregular shape.

Linking from the side garden to the rear of the house, interlocking terraces and walkways provided formal structure accompanied by box hedging, a water rill and cascade.

The existing sloping border was reshaped and terraced using retaining walls constructed of reclaimed stone from the garden. The wall also formed the start of the water rill in the form of a stepped cascade.

An informal lawn was designed to incorporate the existing plants and trees. An additional seating area was created around a specimen tree providing views across the garden to the house and terraces.

“The attention to detail at both the design and build stage was excellent. We only had a basic brief of what we wanted but from our discussions the final design was spot on. Project transformed a 3/4 acre garden. Recently went back for a design of our kitchen garden.”
