About the garden

The garden is a celebration of the natural, local environment and has been designed for a client who loves being in the countryside. The design evokes the beauty of the woodland and moors through the structures and planting and is a place to relax after enjoying the great outdoors.

Oak is the main hard landscaping material being used for the irregular pergola, unusual decking, timber paving setts and a feature screen around the boundary. A mysterious water feature flows through the centre of the garden and creates an effect evocative of the dark moorland peat bogs.
