Richmond Garden Design After



This garden was an awkward shape with only a shed and some grass in poor condition.  There was no entertaining area in the sun and access was needed to the shed. The client requested a Californian inspired garden having spent much time travelling there.


A new shed was installed and hidden by a decorative screen. The path created an interesting journey through drought tolerant and highly textured planting, akin to what you would see in California. The stepping stones led to relaxed seating area for them to enjoy the afternoon sun.
