Our client came to us with an uninspiring and small new build plot. They wanted to create a large entertaining space, space plants whilst also leaving some grass for their young family to enjoy.
The ground levels and water dispersal were a particular challenge on this job. To create a useable but softened space we created the contemporary paved gravel garden. This achieved a semi-hardstanding area that was softened by planting. This gravel garden also serves as the patio drainage solution, creating a free draining medium to take the water from the patio without costly drainage works in a poorly accessed site.
3 Trees were strategically placed to hide certain windows and raised planters with black bamboo are used to eventually create a clean and tidy block against the back fence.
