Project: The Contemporary Garden
This is a large rear garden of a new build property in Great Lumley, County Durham. The brief from the client was simple, to create a beautiful low maintenance garden with a contemporary feel in keeping with the style of the property. The plot was an unusual shape and sloped away to the far corner.
To add interest the main layout of the garden was set at 45 degrees to the house. This allowed for 2 different seating areas for different times of the day. The one at the rear was constructed slightly lower and was flanked by 2 raised planting areas to give it a more secluded feel than the main entertaining area. The raised planters were constructed of stone to match the house and were shaped to mirror the shape of the garden.
