Hitchin small garden development

Clients’ brief:

To create a child friendly split level garden. The garden had an existing diagonal low brick wall which created a barrier. My clients and I were instantly on the same page when they suggested some steps up into the garden.

I crafted a model to represent timber steps with an integral planter, combining the practical with the beautiful and edible and it works a treat. Annual and perennial herbs sit beautifully in the raised timber planter.

I suggested painting the boundary and existing sheds in black which contrasts beautifully with the timber steps and planter.

Again, a simple design that does add some form and structure to the garden with lots of play space too!
