There was an existing patio that provides a continuation to the kitchen/diner flooring. I designed a step down into a contrasting light grey brick paver area with a small herb garden on the side and planting on the other that merges into a bigger bed under a pinus sylvestris “Watereri”, which although looks quite small, barely made it through the house! The owners wanted a tree that would not get too big and eventually block out the sun. A composite deck with bespoke cantilevered seating provides a relaxed chill out zone at the end of garden. The fence has been painted dark grey and then batons were spray painted off site have been placed on top to hide the original fencing and make it all look brand new.
