East-facing Town Garden
The brief was to transform this previously neglected garden with a dated 80's red brick terrace and central concrete path into a smart, bright and easy to maintain garden. The clients work from home in the garden office and wanted to be able to access this in all weathers and also at night. So a curving porcelain path and subtle lighting make this possible. A terrace area, perfect for dining al fresco, really lightens this previously dark back garden. A new deck made from recycled plastic links the office to the path. Its dark grey colour complements the anthracite grey aluminium windows and doors of the office. The planting is low-maintenance, concentrating on foliage rather than flower, including a multi-stem acer and prunus serrula, ferns and hostas.
