1940s council house

The aim was to soften the exterior of the house and create an oasis of peace and privacy.

This austere ex-council house had an uninspiring garden of mainly lawn, net fencing, forsythia hedging and a large conifer tree.
It has been transformed into a garden providing a large circular terrace with pots and a fire dish, a second seating area with chiminea, a pond, a potting shed, a bicycle store and another large shed/workshop/home office.
Natural and relaxed planting ties each of these areas together and has turned what was once a barren space into a haven for wildlife.
