Terraced Garden, Colby

This large and uninspiring sloped rear garden faced north, was mostly grassed and had a bank of shrubs blocking the view from the windows. The only sunny sitting space was at the front of the house overlooked by the road.

We provided a more usable and attractive space by reshaping the slope to create two level terraces, separated by a low timber retaining wall and a flower-filled bank. We excavated into the bank to create an enlarged private patio providing a relaxing area with shelter and sun. For more activity we also built a kitchen garden using raised timber beds which were producing vegetables within six weeks.

The project was so successful that our client decided not to proceed with the work to the front garden.
