The client had different tastes to the very cottagey front garden she inherited with the house, so we came up with a design that was simple and stylish but within budget. An informal area to enjoy the sun with a G&T was incorporated with a curved Oak sleeper wall which also helped deal with the subtle level changes. Strips of paving with decorative aggregate and planting between kept the hard landscaping to a minimum, and created pockets for a simple palette of grasses, herbaceous perennials and a feature multi-stem Amelanchier that helped block the view to the front door. By changing the side, you accessed the property and with the two Oak arch spans you entered across, and enjoyed the small space much more.
