It is a real pleasure to work with people in like-minded professions and our client for this project was an architect. We work with lots of architects on projects but rarely get to have an influence on the design of their private gardens. The client had two small children which is why you can see a sunken trampoline in the lawn!
The house sits towards the back of the plot with most of the garden to the front - an area we have also master planned and hope to go to site with in 2017. The whole rear garden is raised up from the house with the exception of the main patio space and gravel area which is backed by a large brick wall placed to hide the roof of the next door property.
A large deck complete with modern garden room fills one side, with the transition space between, filled with clipped box and a sunken gallium pit complete with boulder stepping stone. This is very much a space for the kids with lawn, sunken trampoline and tree house. The planting is semi-shade tolerant but also block-based with the Pennisetum, Buxus and Gallium. There is also plenty of lighting in the space which, at night, really transforms it into a great space to both look out on but also use and enjoy.
