Project: The full redesign of a modern estate garden
This back garden lies in the heart of a modern established estate in Langley Moor, County Durham and is north facing. The owner loves gardening and wanted a garden with plenty of space for plants and a flat area of grass for the grandchildren to play on.
The sloping site required a design that incorporated terracing and to add interest a number of levels of differing materials were introduced. The back of the garden is sunniest so this is where the lawn and seating areas were located with access provided via steps and paths through the various levels. To add height to the garden a curving pergola was built over the curving path.
