Romantic suburban garden

My clients’ children had grown out of football and guinea pig ownership, and they wanted a restyle.

A couple of trees were too big for the garden, and were removed, along with a child's swing and a small terrace which faced north. The lawn was reshaped to allow for larger, simpler borders and a more informal planting to give it a romantic feel, with a swing seat instead of the swing. A water feature and bed near the house helped to make the transition between house and garden more natural, giving a focal point for the terrace. There will also be shade planting and a bird feeder as a focus for winter views from the conservatory.
