This small town garden is approximately 12m x 5m wide and has a north aspect. During the summer months, there is a few meters of sunshine at the rear end of the garden. Currently a mish-mash of materials, levels and plants including 2 10m high oak trees, this garden is uninviting.
The brief was to create a space where the children can enjoy a trampoline and the adults can enjoy a 'gin and tonic'. There is also the family rabbit who needs to be considered.
With such limited space, it was important to include the trampoline in such a way that it was not overpowering. Further more, a partial filtered screening between areas of use, will give definition of space and allow all the family to use the garden at the same time.
Bespoke Features and Elements:
Sunken trampoline with lawn covered lid
Rabbit hutch with tunnel run
Blue limstone paving
Key Plants for shade:
Variety of ferns
Key Plants for Partial Sun:
miniture cherry trees
photinia 'red robin'
The clients will complete the garden themselves during the early part of 2013

‘Great vision and not how we would have planned it. Separating the areas makes it feel bigger, I would have thought this would make it smaller. We are really happy with this design and look forward to constructing this space’
