The Task At Hand
This garden had been kept clean and tidy but very basic. The plot is located near the bottom of a very large hill and the level changes were quite a challenge. Our client had already had a large number of trees removed but other than that the garden was all grass.

The client’s brief was to have a wall of colour, room to play cricket and a Breeze House to be incorporated into the design. They also wanted to be able to walk along the top of the garden, utilising the small amount of space on the higher level and providing an alternative view or route through the garden.
"The finished result was more than we could have dreamed for. We now spend a lot more time in our garden than we ever did before"
We leveled out the bottom lawn and altered the shape and gradient of the sloped face. Using large specimen shrubs and small garden trees we created structure upon the slope, the selected plants provide seasonal colour and interest throughout the year.
Building a curved sleeper wall into the slope allowed us to push the footprint of the Breeze House as far back as possible leaving maximum playing space on the lawn. A pebbled stream water feature was created based around both the new and existing levels in the garden. It’s position meant that when sitting in the living room you would have a beautiful view of the feature and arbor beyond.
Here are some of the before and after pictures...
