How to Fix a Sloping Garden – A Transformation

Entertaining garden with large smooth patio and fire pit

Our clients from Warwickshire came to us with a problem that’s common for lots of homeowners. Their garden was steeply sloped, a difficult garden to manage and support. After we had the first consultation with them, we set to work designing a garden that they could fall in love with instantly.

Read on to find out their problems, and how we helped them overcome them.

The Problem: A Steeply Sloped, Unusable Garden

Our Warwickshire-based clients faced a challenging and difficult to maintain garden. The garden was a very steeply sloping garden. Sloping upwards away from the house, it left the whole garden feeling disjointed and neglected, as if the garden were in a separate place from the home, leaving them with little usable space to enjoy.

The Brief and Our Solution

Our client’s main brief was that they wanted a garden that was suitable for entertaining their family and friends. They wanted more intimate spaces for the quieter evenings, for them to sit, relax and while away the day’s stresses.

To help them achieve this, it meant that the sloped space needed flattening into terraces to fully transform how the garden could be used. A solid timber shelter gives them some extra privacy in the garden. And it comes with a complete kitchen area underneath for hosting guests. The shelter supplies protection from the elements all year round. For gatherings on the cooler evenings, a built-in brick fire pit area offers all-inclusive seating for chatting and unwinding.

High-quality, luxury feeling materials were used in this garden. And low maintenance, seasonal planting completes this easy to care for space.

The Result

This impressive garden offers the ultimate outdoor entertaining experience, whatever the weather. Now home and garden connect beautifully–with the garden now being an extension of their home instead of feeling like it’s in “another place”–supplying a stunning extension of their living space. We used a complementing mix of smooth sandstone, render and rustic brick when building this garden, to give it a contemporary modern feel.
