The Problem: A Growing Home Left the Garden Feeling Cramped
After several extensions of their home, our Leicestershire based clients felt that their current garden no longer met their needs. A dated block patio surrounded by a brick wall that retained the two-tiered garden had increasingly grown closer to the house. The garden was feeling cramped and disjointed.
Our clients wanted a larger space for entertaining and relaxing while still encompassing the gardens’ level change. Smooth sawn sandstone with complemented rustic faced bricks creates a contemporary edge to the space. A curving raised bed forms a seating nook on the main patio breaking up the expanse of the paving. The use of the circular lawn helps maintain an element of green space. It faces a lounging area covered with a beautifully stained oak pergola and heat lamps that take the edge off cooler evenings. The perfect spot for reading a book or enjoying a glass of wine, while listening to the relaxing rustle of the bamboo in the background.
The Final Result
This garden boasts suburban luxury. A fantastic space for enjoying large gatherings with friends or more intimate evenings with family. Orange-stained timber adds warmth and an inviting atmosphere. The ample patio spaces completely open up this area to a whole host of events.
