Project: The staged creation of a new garden from scratch
This garden in County Durham is in an exposed site in the countryside and was completely wild. The owner wanted it completely redesigned and to be low maintenance. The project was of a significant size so in order for it to be affordable the work was undertaken in stages.
The patio has been located in the sunniest part of the garden and has been surrounded by terraced shrub borders that will provide protection from the prevailing wind once established. A high proportion of the shrubs are evergreen to add winter interest and many of them closet to the patio are scented to add further interest. A sunken seating area was designed into a shady part of the garden to add a further dimension.
