The client wanted to bring a bit of the ‘Mediterranean’ to her small back yard space in Horsforth, Leeds.
She also requested areas of seating and space to entertain and enjoy the garden in the evenings . Most of the garden was in the shade so the patio was raised to capture the late evening sun. The space was made very private using ship-lap fencing. Subtle lighting permitted the garden to be used well into the night.
Aire Valley Landscapes constructed the garden. The pale diamond-sawn sandstone paving makes the space appear larger and the terracotta tiles give it a warm Mediterranean feel.
The planting was completed by Essence Garden Design. The sheltered nature of the space allowed selection of some borderline hardy plants and shrubs.
