small back garden


This small back garden belongs to a lady who loves plants so wanted a manageable cottage garden where she could fully appreciate them.

She wanted to keep some lawn, so we pared this down to a minimum, created an oval on an angle to visually extend the space then added gravel over the rest of the area to really show off all her plants and make them more accessible.

We added stepping stones to a corner seat, which catches a lot of the sun and is appreciated by the client if she can manage to evict the cats which seem to have adopted it as their home!

The original small back garden now feels a lot bigger and the ‘Cottage Garden’ feel has definitely been captured and has brought in much wildlife which can be appreciated from the Conservatory.
