Our client worked from home with the office looking out over the front garden. They requested the creation of a ‘non-conventional’ space with privacy from the road, a view from their workspace and interest all year round.
Realign the path from front door to gate around a free-standing timber screen and planting, thus reducing the view into the garden from the road and making a more interesting route.
Provide a small patio area for enjoying the afternoon and evening sun.
Create raised timber beds of different heights and filling them with an array of plants flowering at different times of the year and with a diversity of leaf shape and colour.
Pave with warm-toned stone and gravel giving texture and complementing the planting.
