A new garage was required and this prompted re-design of the whole of the outdoor space. As well as the new garage building and retaining wall behind, large conifers were removed. The lawn was replaced with slate chippings and new fencing was erected. This resulted in a much lighter garden space. The front and back were unified by using the same sandstone paving and walling stone and the diagonal orientation created the illusion of a much larger space. The hard landscaping was done by Aire Valley Landscaping. Essence Garden Design completed the planting of both gardens.
