This was a high-maintenance garden which was under-utilised due to rotten decking and grass that had seen better days.  My client needed an outdoor space to enjoy and entertain with minimal maintenance.  As the garden was on a slope, meticulous planning was required to maximise the space. 


A dining terrace was designed with wide access steps up through the garden, with a modern steel pergola providing greater privacy. The in-built sound system and ambient lighting created the perfect evening entertaining space.

Combining an artificial lawn and green wall with shade tolerant planting softened the overall design.
