Garden for a 14th Century terraced cottage. Currently steep and overgrown, the garden will be landscaped over three levels with space for outdoor dining, relaxed seating, a lawn and abundant cottage garden planting.
Initial concept draft @ 1:50
Perennials that hold their form through Winter, and provide successive colour throughout the year.

Brief / Key Features
Fill gaps between historic patio slabs outside the back door, to create a stable surface. Infill with matching stone and weak mix mortar to encourage plants (daisies, violas, mind-your-own business) to grow between
Create reclaimed timber seating and table for outdoor dining
Millboard boardwalk and deck with sofas. The boardwalk will be raised to even out the levels between patio and garden; it will help soften the existing pond into the garden, and create access
Steps down to lawn and on to log cabin; area of gravel held in edging bricks
3x4m log cabin for work and hobbies, with adjacent bistro seating below a lightweight pergola
