The owners of this garden EJ and Steve, had for many years been sharing their back garden with a number of chickens, who had all but destroyed their lawn and flower beds! Existing landscaping has started to fail, and the pergola around the hottub was feeling very shabby. Desperate to reclaim their garden from the poultry, the chickens were re-homed to their allotment, and work could begin revolutionising their space.
With a focus on entertaining and cooking, a greater area of the garden has been devoted to smooth granite paving, with stylish monocouche rendered walls and raised planters. A strong 45 degree geometry has opened up the space and some dense planting will help to lose the corners and increase the sense of space in this modern garden.
A large American hottub occupies the far corner, and contractors were commissioned to remove the existing pergola and replace it with a much more modern design. Chunky upright posts with slatted screen walls and roof now enclose the space and provide windows to the rest of the garden.
The garden is just awaiting planting. It will look stunning when it is completed and will provide plenty of room for family and friends to gather around avid cook Steve's barbeque while he rustles up more delicious dishes! As evening descends, uplighters illuminate the trees, and inset LED spotlights within the rendered walls will add a sophisticated glow at foot level.
