The garden illustrated is for a client living in one of the Cotswold Oxfordshire villages between Banbury and Cheltenham.
The detached house owners had already installed a timber red deck terrace. Our brief was to create a garden to not only integrate with the terrace but to make it far easier for the family to walk up the steps safely from the garden's rear entrance up to the house.
The slope from the garage to the house was substantial, and our client quickly informed us that it was no mean feat to carry the shopping, let alone with their infant son with his Scooter.
From our introductory discussion a design brief was written. Some structures were incorporated, including a safe area for Timothy to play, lighting to assist safe step climbing, evening relaxation, a focal point, a level lawn and planting that would provide structure as well as be easy to maintain.
It was agreed to use Oak Sleepers to the area at the side of the house to form the border edge. We sourced all the items including the large orb water feature, lighting, play swing and rubber chippings for a safe surface in the play area.
The recommended Landscaper carried out the work to the highest standard and was highly praised by the client for their diligent work.
