This lovely Victorian villa had been completely re-vamped by a busy client who had little time to garden but wanted to create something fresh and clean to compliment the rest of the work they had done inside the house. The stunning glass extension provided a great link to the garden both on lovely hot summers days or cool autumn ones - a place to sit privately and enjoy the green oasis within a suburb of Leicester.
Surrounding the bottom of the house is a large limestone patio - the use of a sawn edged stone with a split face balances the modern clean look with an understanding of the age of the building. The multi-stemmed Amelanchier tree acts as both a focal from the glass room and also breaks the patio up. Large steps link the limestone patio space to a large rectangular lawn surrounded by existing mature trees and shrubs. The cedar screen provides a clean fresh back drop and the planting is predominately evergreen with a mixture of structure from the Buxus and infomality with the rosemary and perrenials.
