The client wanted to bring a bit of the ‘Med’ to her small back yard space in Horsforth, Leeds.
Areas of seating and space to entertain and enjoy the garden in the evenings were also required. Most of the garden was in the shade so the patio was raised to capture the late evening sun. Lighting allows use of the garden well beyond dusk.
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.
