The Odd Shaped Garden
The challenge with this garden was to transform the overwhelming high fence and make some useable sense out of the very odd shape. The end of the garden was taken up by large slabs of concrete and a very big tree stump.
With space at a premuim, this all had to go thus creating a longer garden and grass area.
The next challege was covering the existing fence which had to stay in place due to structual reasons. This was clad with treated timber.
The height of the fence was still very imposing so the space was broken up using painted raised beds and complimentary vertical planting. This gave the garden a more solid structure and colour.
The decked area was fixed into the grooves beneath the bi-folding doors. The colour of the decking was carefully chosen so that it reflects the colour of the kitchen floor on the other side of the doors. This creates a huge level floor space joining the kitchen seamlessly with the open garden space.
