A tired, overgrown garden has been transformed into a stunning contemporary space with a generous patio outside the house, and a cedar deck in the top corner of the garden where my clients can relax and enjoy the sunshine.

The main patio has been lowered to the same level as the internal floor space, enabling us to create some level changes in what was previously a flat garden. Raised beds help to break up the space, and add additional interest and structure. Cedar seating and a matching table and storage unit have been built on the main patio to form a stylish seating area.

The planting has been designed to be bright and colourful, matching the internal colour scheme of the house, and providing interest and structure throughout the year. The existing shed has been renovated and painted, and set behind a rendered wall which helps to hide the utility area at the back of the garden.
