Possibly our favourite project to date, we love the transformation, from the clean lines, the way the seating and the beds kind of meld into each other, joining the two levels together. The way the steeps and the pergola are off centre slightly just to drag your eye to the far end of the upper level. We feel this is our first real opportunity to show just what we can do and introduce some real WOW factor.
Our client had a fairly small rear garden. When she open her patio doors she encountered a grassy bank that did not allow either her or her children to do anything at all. There was a large tree dominating then right hand side of the garden and a very overgrown and almost inaccessible section on the left beside the garage.
We were commissioned to re design her garden so that there was an area for play, an area to entertain and an area to relax and also beds to relocate the many plants she already had.
The first task was to actually find a way to create space, so that when she opened her patio doors she no longer felt boxed in. rather than having a slope, two clearly defined levels made much more sense. The two levels were connected by a set of steps and seating was built into the walls along with the beds thus combining three uses in to one structure.
Contained within these walls is a small lawn, big enough to kick a small ball about. The higher level housed a pergola which was built over the flower beds to provide a structure for climbers and also provide support for hammocks.
All level areas were paved with sandstone, the seating was oak textured composite and the walls were rendered with monocouche to provide that clean white appearance.
On a subsequent visit our client told us that we had transformed the lives of herself and her daughters, because they now spend so much time outside because the space they now have us so useable. She also recommended us to three other people, which speaks volumes….
