Water And Shelter
Contemporary garden designed with a water rill & a cedar shelter.
Water and Shelter
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 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.
