Family garden in Baldock, Hertfordshire


Clients’ brief:

A family garden on a sloping site ~ the brief was to create an outdoor space that all members of the family can enjoy and to create extra screening to boundaries. We have collaborated on the design and have considered the space for two family cars ~ the design is both practical and beautiful combining natural materials and lots of perennial planting and ornamental trees. The new sunken patio with be paved with white porcelain and flanked by retaining timber planters with integral steps up to the lawn ~ we have also created a beautiful garden retreat beneath a pergola with garden sofa and table.

Perennial plants will be aromatic evergreens and edible ~ the design includes a raised veg patch for the children to garden and grow goodies for the family to enjoy.
