Bringing the Outside In


Residential Back Garden, Gerrards Cross

The clients wanted to create an elegant, relaxing space that also dealt with some practical issues. The back of the house is raised up and they wanted a safe exit from the lounge sliding doors and dining room patio doors.

I was keen to capitalise on the addition of raised decking that runs along the full width of the house to bring the feeling of the garden into the house. Planters were therefore added along the length of the decking so the view from the house is of planting rather than lawn and hedge.

Planting has been added around the raised dining terrace to create a softer feel and a new gravelled firepit seating area, also surrounded by planting, was added to provide an area for sundowners.

New trees add biodiversity and seasonal interest throughout the garden.
