This garden is owned by a retired professional couple who enjoys "pottering" in the garden. The garden is north facing and surrounded by old stone high walls of character. Our brief was to design a modern - classic garden with raised plant beds to save bending down so much and utilising modern natural stone paving. A seating area at the end of the garden was also desired to capture the sunlight and sufficient room for the grandchildren to play.
We had to negotiate with the neighbouring bank to move their escape ladder, positioned by the French doors round to one of the unseen walls at the side of the garden.
With a successful agreement, we were able to utilise the wall for climbers that brought interest as well as an uninterrupted view of the garden.
