This design is for a garden in Milford, Surrey and as you can see from the images is sited on a hill. One of the challenges here was to develop on what was already in place. The clients had built some steps leading up from the terrace by the house and were keen for budget reasons not to have to dismantle them and start afresh. At first the angle was awkward but rather than fight the diagonal, I went with it and used it as a trigger for the rest of the design. A boardwalk of hardwood decking leads up to an evening terrace at the back of the garden, which is surrounded by lush planting and two water bowls by Urbis.
