The garden feels larger than it really is thanks to a circular lawn and some careful planting. Every square inch has been used to great effect. It's all about attention to detail in a small space.
A new-build house in Borough Green, Kent posed a number of challenges in that the original space comprised of nothing more than fences and turf. Not very inspiring but typical of millions of new-build properties. The end of the garden also sank away over the last ten feet leaving an area which was hard to use.
The solution ? Create a two-level garden, with upper lawn area, planting, patio, seating areas and real passion for colour, then a second, lower area accessed by oak timber steps underneath an archway leading to a beautifully crafted timber shed, great for keeping all the garden paraphenalia.
