Above is the ‘after’ shot of patio in a garden I designed earlier this year. Note the overhangng pear tree, large bay tree, and the side of the house – all present in the ‘before’ shot, below:
The old shed and greenhouse were removed, along with the old paths in the lawn. The banked lawn was levelled out and retained by sleepers.
The bricks of the wall were chosen to tie in with the traditional period house, and being built with piers and recessed pointing, it makes the new wall look very much in keeping.
Terracotta pots with classic lavender ‘dress’ the new patio and frame the entrance to the garden.
