DESIGN

  • Remove and rebuild staircase in brick and cedar, to open up the lower level
  • Build built in seating and bespoke table on lower level
  • Install herringbone brick paviors to lower level
  • Remove overgrown shrubs and brick edging
  • Recycle existing York stone slabs on the upper level.
  • We cast a concrete bench in situ and surrounded it with an arch of hops.
  • Build new shou sugi ban (burnt timber) pavilion with green roof to provide seating and storage incorporating water feature
  • Plant black bamboo, multi-stem trees underplanted with germander, various grasses and alliums.  Plant new wall mounted planter with various herbs
  • Plant climbing roses, wisteria and clematis along with cloud pruned tree and dogwood for winter colour
  • Small copper beech hedge for privacy

One of our design goals was for the garden to look good from all levels of the house
