The Terraced Garden

This terraced garden was designed to give the family an entertaining area whilst still giving the kids a good area to play in and have fun.

The existing area was shady, sloped bank and a very mossy lawn. The side area of the house gave a feeling of a small enclosed space leading to the kitchen.

The aim whilst not being able to do anything about the surrounding trees, was to create terraced borders and a useable large patio area and to open up the side area making it feel larger and to enable the growing of vegetables mixed with flowers and climbers.

The planting takes into account the soil and light conditions whilst giving some structure in the winter.
