The brief for this sloping garden was for a good sized entertaining area, a flat lawn, screening of the neighbour’s conservatory and low maintenance planting. The garden was split into two levels using timber sleepers. The top level is laid to lawn with a climber covered pergola screening the adjacent neighbour’s conservatory. The lower paved level provides plenty of room for a large table and chairs. Behind the garage sits a timber gazebo and a small paved area outside the French doors provides a space for a handy high bistro set.
