A transformation for a garden in desperate need of some TLC.
The homeowners wanted a contemporary garden with a rustic/seaside vibe.
The industrial balcony leads from the house to the lower terraces. One for outdoor dining and the other provides a lounging space.
The vertical and horizontal oak timbers will weather to a natural grey colour as will the ‘Hit and Miss’ Venetian fencing.
This garden had a very steep bank with difficult-awkward steps leading up to the house. We completely redesigned the garden by terracing the bank with brick and oak timbered retaining walls to provided a safe, complimentary and user-friendly set of steps up to the house. We also made sure to include wildlife-friendly planting schemes. It was very important to include a pond for the frogs, newts, stickle-back fish, bathing birds, dragonflies, foxes and badgers!
Courtyard Garden in Hastings East Sussex. A sheltered sunny courtyard a few hundred meters from the sea. Trees planted in containers, plants for year-round interest and annual bedding plants for bursts of colour. A place for dining and entertaining.
