The owners of this modern detached home in Harshill, Nuneaton, Warwickshire were lucky enough to enjoy stunning views of the countryside from the rear of their property.
To take advantage of this panoramic landscape to the full, they asked us to redesign their existing two-tier garden to include new patios and seating areas. Our clients also wanted us to make the garden open and accessible with easy to maintain flowerbeds and planting scheme.
Our first task was to remove the existing small walls running along the side of the flowerbeds so we could restructure the two levels of the garden. New walling was built with a timber seat and raised beds incorporated into the structure. This gave our clients an additional place where they could sit and gaze across the rolling fields.
Next, we laid sandstone paving that flowed around the conservatory and formed a new patio space across the breadth of the house and around the back door area. We installed drainage channels along the conservatory to catch any surface water running off the paving.
An attractive sandstone circular feature was constructed with steps around the curves to give safe and gentle access down to the lower level. We used the same sandstone paving at the bottom of the garden and around the summerhouse, bordered with rumbled edging blocks. Sections of gravel were installed for drainage and to make these spaces easy to maintain.
Rumbled setts were used to form a winding pathway through the lawn to connect the patio with the seating and feature space. We encircled the grass with block edges to define the new lawn and create an easy mowing strip.
Building raised beds at waist height makes gardening less arduous as there’s no need to keep bending down. These raised beds are simple to maintain and perfect for displaying eye-catching planting schemes. We removed some of the existing shrubs and plants while relocating others to different positions to fit in with the overall garden design.
Our clients were impressed with how hard our team worked and by their high standard of craftsmanship; even the dog was happy with the finished result!
Not only did the garden look superb, it perfectly fitted the bill as a modern, easy to maintain outdoor space. And, of course, it now provides a comfortable and stylish setting for our clients to relax outside and enjoy the stunning countryside views from their back garden.
