This was a newly acquired property on a new build estate. The owner had chosen this particular house because of the south-facing sunroom on the back of the property, with concertina doors opening out into a void of a garden – he gave us a call.
Clearly, the number one objective was to link the sunroom into the garden with minimal interruption. The garden was an unusual shape with the boundary cutting across obliquely- this dictated the design, we couldn’t use curves on this one. The other major point of the brief was an outdoor kitchen area, this was an interesting challenge to design this space as we would be governed by the dominant component of the barbeque oven, which only arrived once the project was underway. This was fine by us as we love making space and materials work as new problems surface.
There was a large change in level from the patio doors to the rear corner. We split the garden in half with sleeper retainment between two levels.
The customers were lovers of roses so we designed the planting scheme around this affinity and installed trellis surrounding the garden both for privacy and to train the rambling roses.
Nathan and team took our high level ideas and created a beautiful garden. Having moved into a new build we only had the turf and paving put down by the builders. Nathan and team created a garden with different levels and textures. Nathan was able to clearly describe his plan for the garden at the outset, and any changes that were made during the development. The team used the highest quality materials and have finished everything to a really high standard. M. Atkinson
