Canine Haven

The brief for this garden was for a practical dog and child friendly space.  The garden was bordered on two sides by high hedges which were perfect for privacy but cast large amounts of shade at certain times in the day.  We specified artificial turf as a innovative solution – this gave a practical tough surface for the dogs and children to play on.

New low rendered walls with slate panels tidied up the lower edges of the die hedges

New curved raised beds with low maintenance planting were placed to soften the look of an existing hot tub and a pergola was built to add height and allow scented climbers to be planted.

A fruit and vegetable garden was created at the far end of the site with raised sleeper borders and an apple tree.  An adjacent smaller patio and bench area gave somewhere to rest and enjoy the sunshine.  Steps through a new timber arch led to a lower area with a further vegetable bed, a chicken run and the existing garden shed.
