Water And Shelter

Contemporary garden designed with a water rill & a cedar shelter.


Water and Shelter

The Brief:

To design a garden which was unique and had a ‘Wow’ factor. Primarily the garden was to be used for entertaining, but needed to look great when being used for the family. Areas were needed for cooking, eating and relaxing.

The Garden:

The garden is split into four distinct areas. Out of the back door is a raised oak walkway venturing toward a planted canal pool with water blade feature to the left. Beyond this, to the right is a walled patio area with BBQ space, seating and outdoor bar area to exploit the views of the countryside beyond. Across from the bar space is a covered seating area with built in cedar seating and coffee table.

Further down the garden, stone steps take you into a more traditional space, with a small lawn and borders planted with perennials to soften the hard landscaping. The garden has a pod to the rear for reading and to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life.
