Project: Interlocking Shapes
This Durham garden had been partially landscaped sometime ago but was in need of a total revamp. The owner wanted different areas for relaxation (including a hammock!) as well as an area for entertaining up to 10 guests.
Taking my cue from the patio doors on the conservatory, the layout of the design was at an eye catching 45 degrees to the main house. This allowed for a large “W-shaped” patio area to be constructed near the house without it taking up too much of the garden. To this interesting shape a series of interconnected brick-edged oblongs and squares was added to create a lawn, gravel garden, water feature and herb garden. The difficult area under the 2 mature trees was planted with woodland plants and provided an ideal place for the hammock!.
