The rising cost of land and pressure for more housing has seen a huge rise in the popularity of town house accompanied by a trend for ever shrinking garden sizes.

 

First floor lounges and balconies are a great place to view your garden from, and for showing up a poor or weak design. Strong geometric shape make a great framework for these small plots, especially when viewed from above.

It is essential that the garden is designed in such a way as to really grab your attention and keep you focused on the features within the garden and away from the constraining fences. The stronger the hold on the viewers attention the less aware they are of just how close the boundary and even the neighbours are.

This feature was designed for Mark and Andi in Peterborough, who were exacting but delightful clients to work for. Such a clean and contemporary design is not suitable for everyone but these clients have maintained this garden to an impeccable standard.
