Family Garden

The owners had just completed some building work, during which the garden resembled a building site, so now they were ready to turn their attention to creating their perfect family garden.

In the small front garden a clear welcoming entrance to the front door at the side of the house was needed, together with a parking space. Gravel was used so that water can drain, but grids hold the gravel in place and make it easy to push a buggy. Evergreen planting provides a private but clearly defined entrance, and a small composition of architectural plants and a new tree create balance.

In the long back garden the garden has been kept open to allow light to flood in through the new folding doors, and to enjoy the views of the Downs at the end of the garden. There are clearly defined spaces for entertaining and play. A large terrace provides plenty of flexible entertaining space, screened from a neighbouring dormer by a trellis arbour area. This is balanced by another trellis panel opposite which doubles as support for a retractable washing line. Stepping stones lead to a BBQ area, on the site of an old greenhouse base left in situ rather than removed to landfill. The main lawn is surrounded by generous planting, partially screening a further lawn area for the children. Around this end lawn, planting includes native shrubs and flowers, merging towards the tree covered Downs.

This is a garden that imaginatively integrates everything the family needs into a stylish outdoor space.

    The front garden before worked started - an unwelcoming, unusable space.

    A dull and uninspiring garden, but with good potential thanks to the space and natural backdrop.

    The original terrace area - dull and soon to be overlooked by the neighbour's new dormer window.
