The South West London Gardener

Under the Boardwalk

Under the Boardwalk

Our clients had a good size garden which was entirely covered in decking making it feel like a space they could not manage or use in the way they wanted.  There were no existing green spaces for planting. Their requirements were to have a modern patio with a large dining area, easy maintenance plant beds to soften the boundaries, a shed to store garden implements and sundries and some grass to connect and soften
The garden was on an incline so we created a step to separate the patio area from the rest of the garden.  We constructed a full width patio with a raised sleeper edging.  
We laid a permeable shed base at the bottom of the garden and created two beds large enough to accommodate a few evergreen shrubs providing colour and ease of maintenance.  
Paving slabs to match the patio were laid in the side return to lead from the kitchen door to the patio in turn adding to the more modern feel.
‘Blown away by our garden renovation!!! This would not have been possible without friends coming to the rescue and of course The Southwest London Gardener who made some magic happen!’
