Patio before construction
The natural drop in ground level and the surrounding planting makes the limestone gravelled lounging area with its fire basket feel snug, separate and contained. This area catches the low rays of the afternoon sun, which sparkles on the fall of water from the stainless steel feature.
The use and atmosphere of the garden is extended and enhanced into the evening, Spots with glare louvres light the table from the pleached trees, a moonlight in one of the big Ash trees washes down onto the lounge area where the bespoke Millboard bench glows from beneath lighting neatly stacked logs. Up-lighting on the lollipop Bay trees, a young flowering Cherry and two multi-stemmed Amelanchiers and the water feature throw pick out areas of interest.
“Gilly gave us a very thorough briefing before she started planning our new garden. She was accurate in interpreting our wishes into a lovely design that has been realised very professionally. She managed the project very well and her attention to detail was second to none. We are very pleased with the end result and feel confident that Gilly would be an excellent choice for other clients.”
