About the Garden

Intended for a mature family that enjoys spending time at home and in the garden, this design provides space for the occupants to explore, sit, relax with a favourite hobby, and dine away from view of neighbours.

A decorative, vertically slatted wooden boundary assists in splitting the garden into rooms. It continues with the low internal slatted fences cutting into the garden. A sleeper bridge carries the visitor over a sunken, shallow pebble pond.
