Garden design and construction
A family garden for a Victorian townhouse
The clients had recently undertaken extensive renovation and building works on this victorian townhouse, and were now looking for a new garden to compliment the house.
Our brief was to design a garden that was in keeping with the victorian style of the house. The clients wanted a good size level lawn for their children to play and sufficient patio area for entertaining in the garden.
The project included:
Terracing the garden to a produce a level lawn area and a raised bed along the right hand border - the garden previously sloped from right to left
A second, smaller lawn was created at the far end of the garden
The two circular design patios were paving with reclaimed yorkstone
Pathways, and a feature circle laid in dark grey granite setts
The lawns are both edged with dark grey granite setts
The long raised bed and other low planters were built from sandstone
A new wall was built along the rear border of the garden, with a gateway for rear access. The wall was built from reclaimed yellow stock bricks and ragstone - in keeping with the walls of the house
New closeboard fencing on one side of the garden
