The clients want to change this challenging new build garden into an outdoor space that fits the needs of all the family. The front garden will provide more privacy whilst the trees and shrub understorey will soften the barren appearance of the new housing development. The back garden, on two levels, will have a paved, sunken terrace with pergola for outdoor dining, as well as decking on the top level. Low maintenance hedging and perennial planting add colour, texture and scent. The lower level, accessed by steps from the same decking material, will be a low maintenance space for free play and trampolining by the children. The wire gabions will be encased in timber to match the proposed new fencing.
