Family garden under construction

Construction work is well underway on a project I designed earlier in the year for a large family garden. The brief was to create a practical useable space for the whole family, with plenty of room for seating both outside the kitchen and directly from the indoor pool area, the overall style of the design is contemporary to reflect the interior of the clients home.

The garden runs around the entire house and wheelchair access had to be considered from one area to another. The client requested a low maintenance garden so simple block planting has been specified that will give all year interest. The addition of green walls, cedar trellis panels and mirror panels to the courtyard directly outside the kitchen will continue the contemporary theme.

Perennial Landscape are carrying out the landscaping works and they are doing a wonderful job laying the large hardwood decking and laying the paving slabs to the side area of the garden. The sensory water feature makes a strong focal point to the back garden and work will soon start on installing the outside shower, cedar trellis panelling, mirrored panelling, green walls and planting.
