Seclusion in a woodland setting

Work is underway in a steeply sloping garden in Oaklands. The garden runs around the entire house and is set in woodland allowing privacy to the garden. The brief was to create a larger useable area directly from the kitchen. The old crazy paved patio with several levels was removed along with a deep pond and in their place a large decked area was created that housed a sunken hot tub, outside shower and purpose built BBQ area.

A mix of decking and slabs were used to break up the area and provide interest. The decking was carried on around the front of the house to create a secluded seating area that makes the most of the afternoon sun and is shielded from the neighbouring properties. All landscaping works carried out by Perennial Landscape.
