The brief for this spacious, family garden required both formal and informal seating areas, pond, swings and a sunken trampoline.
The original site lent itself to a three-tier design to compensate for the garden sloping away from the house: A clean modern design was requested for the top tier to reflect the home’s new extension, with the lower two tiers giving way to the more traditional/natural setting, leading down to the copper beech and silver birches at the bottom of the garden. The use of the permeable self-binding gravel and soft planting combines well with the polished slate tiles and granite paving, giving the space a pleasant balance between the traditional and contemporary.
“Tom has just finished our garden redesign. After a long time planning the design, the execution was worth the wait. The team worked so hard in conditions ranging from thick mud to boiling heat and Tom’s attention to detail was extraordinary. The result is stunning!”
