These green-fingered clients had a longing for a beautiful greenhouse and space to grow vegetables.
The only sunny spot in their property was the sloping east facing front garden. The main access to the house was up a very steep set of steps, rising 4m from the road. The finished garden has a formal layout of Staffordshire brick steps and raised beds.. A western red cedar pergola was designed to match the Gabriel Ash greenhouse which sits on a stout retaining wall against the garage. Regular raised beds provide rich soil for vegetables. A ‘physic’/herb garden gives year round colour and scent to the lower garden. Even the bin store has a green roof – it is all in the details in this compact and productive garden.
