Central Brighton family garden for mum and teenage boys

This family garden was asked to be designed to provide a space for a multitude of activities for the 3 boys, whilst maintaining a sense of 'sanctury' for mum! Given this garden size of 13m x 9m, this was somewhat challenging. 


The boys requests included - football pitch!, trampoline!, table tennis!, chill out area with fire pit, and tree house! - Yes all of this, and mum's request of a dining/ entertainment area and some space for a little planting that would suit mum's busy schedule. 


The success to achieving this was to determine areas within the space for particular uses. This was reached by use of bespoke screening and selected planting, seperating the areas. 


Construction was completed December 2012, full planting to be carried out in March 2013.

‘You’ve been fantastic and everyone whose has seen it so far has been amazed. I can’t believe how quickly it has all taken shape and we can’t wait to have a christening party in the summer. The boys are really enjoying the space’. Thanks Debbie Williams
