Triangular garden design Cheshire.
Are you having trouble knowing how best to deal with an awkardly shaped triangular garden? This shape of garden can be quite challenging. Knowing how best to use the available space is important. In a small garden the problem is even more difficult to solve. Knowing what to do with the ‘pointy’ bit at the end can be a head scratcher. In a small garden, you don’t want to waste that precious space if at all possible.
This small triangular garden in Wilmslow required a modern design. The clients’ brief was for a garden for entertaining. Low maintenance was important. A small play area for the clients’ little daughter was also essential. The pointed end of the garden was used as a screened utility area. The garden shed was located here. This is often a difficult and unused part of a triangular shaped garden. In this case, the area was screened with trellis panels and climbers. The daughter’s barked play area was also semi-screened from the entertaining deck with trellis. It could however be seen from the sun room.
A large deck was built to the side of the house. This area caught most of the sun. In the evening, perimeter deck lights provide an ambient glow. They also highlight the step onto the deck. The garden was surrounded with old fencing panels within concrete posts. We decided to update and give the boundaries a more modern style. Willow panels were attached to the existing posts. All the wood frames and trellis panels were painted Cotswold Cream. This was for continuity through this small modern space. The planting comprised of mainly mature, bold, evergreen specimens to provide instant impact.
