Front garden driveway
Garden project: with restricted space
This project had very specific requirements but we like a challenge!
The owners of this parking space wanted to have a garden to complement their property. There were a number of constraints; lack of space; shared access and very importantly they had to retain the ability to park a car there in the future, should the need arise. They had very specific requirements and a finite budget to work with.
Given the restrictions, Karen produced an inspired design, which gave privacy whilst still allowing access for a car, should the need arise. To keep the garden really low maintenance, artificial turf was used with sandstone steps to break the area up. A walled water feature was incorporated into the design, to create the sound of water in the seating area.
A trellis was used to give a feeling of seclusion to the area, quite a contrast to the previous open space. Lighting was another important element of this garden design and to see the garden transformed at night is magical!
